Good Will Trip #2. Well, after my first Good Will find, I was eager to go back to see what other treasures I would stumble upon. This was so exciting to me that I often made 2-3 trips a week to the Goodwill store. My inspiration on this day was to find a brass lamp. I was watching the Nate Berkus episode with Goodwill Hunting and in their room makeover, they updated an old lamp using some paint and updated the shade by adding texture and color.
I was able to find a nice brass candalebra table lamp by Alsy with the ugliest green shade. The price of the find was $8 so I am encouraged to take this lonely lamp home and transform it into something special.
BEFORE PIC: THE $8 FIND
Well, first I need an inspiration, during my research I came across this lamp from Sears, which resembles the lamp I purchased. Note the price of the lamp.
I actually like brass so I have no plans to apply any paint to this piece. A good cleaning is what it needs. I gently took apart the fabric covering on the lamp shade (the ugly green) which was in bad condition. I am now on the search to find a new lamp shade and I would like to rewire this lamp.
