Ever notice that lamps are ridiculously expensive for what they are? I don’t quite understand it. They are such a basic electronic. It just doesn’t seem like they should cost so much. Same with kitchen faucets. Water comes in this end, goes out that end, but it costs like $800. What am I missing?
So, if you too are put off by the idea of spending over $100 on a glorified light-bulb holder, take heart. And take your old lamps and give them a quick coat of spray paint, and you are in business. The business of not “getting tricked by a bizNESS.” That was a Macklemore quote for you. Sometimes I think I want to give my baby the Macklemore haircut. Quick, someone talk me out of it.
Here Jenn at Endlessly Inspired gave this $2 thriftstore lamp a happy coat of Ocean Breeze and a fun shade. Just removing those dried flowers was an improvement.
And why not update that grand chandelier you’ve never really loved while you’re at it? Laura at Top This Top That contemplated changing hers for months, then went ahead and threw caution to the wind and just did it. And now she wonders why she didn’t do it sooner! It looks stunning with two coats of satin nickle and new shades. (And don’t worry, she knows the faux candles are upside down!)
