Lamp Rescued.

My sister picked up this lamp at Salvation Army...she had a plan.

She taped and painted...and painted.
{Many light coats of spray paint.}

Shells and jute were added.

More shells, glass beads, and a little bling.
{The small outlining shells were actually already on fishing wire.}

She ordered a rectangular shade and really liked the look...but it arrived damaged.

So she used some fabric she had on hand and remade the shade.
Finished product with linen lamp shade and starfish finial!

I think it looks fabulous!
Way to go Sis!

I'm linking with Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch for her Metamorphosis Monday. Be sure to drop by for loads of inspiration!

  13. What a great job! I would love to have that lamp here in Savannah. Is that envy or coveting. Both are wrong. OK, I just love that fabulous lamp. I like your sister's shade better.
    I just published my first post today. Would you take a look and offer suggestions to make it better. Ginger
