On my regular trips to the thrift store
I often come across the same ol' things.
Lots of mugs and figurines.
Piles of holiday tin canisters.
And lots of brass lamps.
I'm not a fan of the sassy brass look.
But recently I transformed a few and now I'm a fan of finding those ol' lamps.
Here's what my latest one looked like before her make-over.
After giving her a good scrub down she got a fresh coat of grey paint.
Then I tackled the shade.
Bye Bye Boring Beige!
I decided to cover her in vintage dictionary pages.
And it was about at this point (with my fingers stuck together with Mod Podge), when I wondered if I had made a good choice.
But there was no turning back.
Here's how she turned out
Now she's still sassy, but not in a 1980's sort of way.
Now if I can just figure out how to make all those
porcelain figurines cool.
Hope you have a sassy day!
