I bought this ugly lamp and lamp shade a week or so ago at The Salvation Army. It was only $1.00 and I saw it's potential! It was black, brass and wood. Ooh, ah!
Poor, ugly lamp! LOL
I really love how it turned out.
I sprayed the whole thing flat black (I already had the paint). I added the burgandy braid trim to the lamp shade(WalMart $1.38), a sweet little burgandy, cream and green tassel(WM $1.38) and 4 burgandy taper candles(WM 88 cents each). Including the dollar I paid for the lamp and shade, I have a total of only $7.28 in this lamp that goes so perfectly in our living room.
