Goodwill Lamp

    Wine Crate Oct. 10 016

As I said earlier in the week, I have been having an extremely dry spell at the Goodwill!  I did find a wood crate last week that I posted about and added some number stencils to and I also brought home  this mini lamp that I was able to perk up.

It was nice and sturdy and just the right size.  It was a bronze color but in very good shape for $3.00.

I spray painted it black.  I like this Rust-oleum American Accents black spray paint the best.  I seem to only be able to find it at Hobby Lobby.

After a couple of coats of paint, and a new shade from Target for $9.99, I have a new small table lamp.  I really been in the reading mood lately so I place the new lamp right next to my favorite reading chair.  (It’s also my “watching a lot of college football on Saturdays” chair”.  :)

And if you didn’t catch it yesterday, I announced the winner of my Giveaway for the Monogrammed Lap Top Bag from Simply-Bags.  The winner was Sissie from Sissie’s Shabby Cottage.  Congratulations to Sissie and Thanks to all who entered!

I really like how your lamp turned out. That's my favorite black paint too!
I also love your number table. Looks great with the lamp.

I actually like your Goodwill picks, how you repurpose those picks, and how you decorate - by and large. But, and I'll try to say this kindly, I don't understand the stenciling numbers and letters on every available surface. Since I really do like a great many of your ideas, and would probably feel quite at home in your home, I'll do my best to try and overcome my 'Meh' reaction to all the stenciling. . . if you'll try to overcome your 'zeal' for stenciling. ; )

Love it :-) I have been giving GW a miss lately, trying not to spend on things I don't need!
