Light Savings Time

Tip of the Day: You may think you are getting a real steal of a deal on that set of thrift-store lamps, but beware!  After buying a replacement harp or two, materials to make them over, and a set of lampshades (which are so ridiculously pricey it’s ridiculous), you may end up paying more than if you had bought a set of brand new lamps. Don’t let that happen to you.

Jennifer was well aware of this, so she patiently waited until half-price day at the thrift-store, (positive that no one else would purchase this uggo pair of lamps in the meantime) and brought them home for about $6 apiece. Then she awesome-ified them with green and gold paint, and I love them so, so much. So much.

  1. Thanks Lindsey! I always enjoy reading your intro’s as much as I enjoy looking at the makeovers!

  2. LOVE Jennifer’s makeover, the lively new look is perfect for a pretty spring vignette!

  3. I would have left them behind in the store as others did. What a shame because the after is gorgeous.

  4. I keep scouring my thrift store for an awesome deal on an ugly lamp that I can awesome-fy. No luck yet. I’ll keep scouring …

  5. This is awesome. Great job I’d buy those suckers right now

  6. You are so right on extra expenses that add up from needing to buy replacement parts for a thrift store lamp! I fell prey to that once
