Bargain of the day!! Vintage Lamps - perfect for a snowy-day project ...

 $12.00!! love it!!
no markings on this one - but it's very solid
 it's missing one of the sets of crystals ... so I will probably replace them all ... the detail in the metal is beautiful!! ... I think it will just need a new shade and a clean-up and will be ready to go!

 $10.00!!! It's very cool too!!
L & L 1973 lamp - there's a small bulb in the base that lights up as well.
the shade is too big ... hmmm maybe I will just swap them around ...
and see if the tacky flowers will come off - then try to paint or stencil something fun on it ... any suggestions?

I just have to find that awesome Blog where some crafty girl repainted and aged the metal parts of the lamp and it looked so NICE! - if I find it I will post the link :)


  1. Love your blog, super cute! Love the ideas too, so inspiring!

  2. Ok I am kind of in love/obsessed with that first lamp! Especially the base of it, it looks so fancy and expensive. Nice job :)
    I agree with the notion to swap the two shades around. I think they look fine as is but I think swapping them would make them look even better.
    Great finds Shannon!

  3. Hey, I can't find your e-mail! Can you write me so I will have it. I need it for the Pay it Forward. Mine is Thanks!

  4. Nice finds!!! To me - getting the shade to fit the lamp is the hardest part! As for the finish - have you ever played with a lil Rub n Buff? That stuff is awesome and comes in every metal toned finish known to man. You literally just rub it on to add color and buff to shine! It is fantastic!
