Story of a Lamp!

This lamp was in the corner of an antique store, old, grungy and a dirty cream coloured base with a even dirtier shade. After I bought it home, I thought I made a huge mistake. Then a couple of days ago, I came across some sisal rope in the hardware store...and that got me thinking. What if....I put the rope on the lamp?...with ideas bursting through my head, I rushed home and got to work! And here is the finished product...of course I had to paint the shade and the base. The base is a shabby black and the shade a vintage white.








It's not perfect, but I like the shabbiness!!!  




I wish I had remembered to take a 'Before' picture....I was so excited, it slipped my mind!!!
What a difference...paint and rope can make!!! A new life!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! And don't forget to check out Good Deal Marketplace.
