Christy received this pineapple lamp with a challenge from a friend: give it a makeover. At Confessions of a Serial DIYer, she says, “This was kind of cute as is, but the lighting was super dull and I have no need for a tiny lamp.” So she cut the cord off and waited a few days for inspiration to strike.
At Inspiration for Moms, Laura has been working on a spruce-up of her sons room. Wanting to create a reading nook, she’d selected the bed as the perfect spot, but needed better lighting. Laura almost shelled out money for a set of new sconces, but remembered just in time that she’d be removing the wall lamps in her master bedroom for an upcoming remodel.
At Besa GM, Besa has a lamp that she’s kind of attached to. So attached that she just keeps transforming it as her decorating style changes!
Jenna blogs at 24 Cottonwood Lane. She’s been working on a makeover of her master bedroom, and sticking to her budget has resulted in several impressive rescues. Just take a look at what she did with her old lamps.
At Pig and Paint, Alison originally purchased this lamp many years ago, adorned with a heavy 70’s rust-colored, bead-trimmed shade. Over the years she held on to it, switching out the lamp shade for the one shown in this picture, but never really loving the look. So finally she transformed it into a glamorous lamp that could live in her master bedroom!
At Creative Dominican, Becca has been working on a master bedroom makeover. Not wanting to spend a ton of money for the kind of lamps she wanted, Becca was thrilled to find these substantial brass lamps at her local Goodwill.
Lauren of If It’s Not Baroque found these lamps at a flea market. No one else was excited about the brassy beauties, but she could see their potential.
Alicia of Thrifty & Chic had an old lamp on her hands that simply didn’t work any more. And at Alicia’s house, stuff like that doesn’t just go to the curb. Nope, it gets turned into something useful!
