How To: Give a Lamp a New Life

1. Find a lamp labeled 'free' on the side of the road. Make sure it works before you begin working on it!
2. Gather supplies. I used some super-cheap acrylic paint and the lampshade was in the clearance section at Target. Score!
3. Paint paint and paint! 
 My lamp took three coats.
4. Celebrate your feat of craftiness!


  1. A kitty can never have enough lamps. Where does red lamp live?

  2. Red lamp lives on my side tableau in the living area!

  3. Geez - I need to live on your street! We just get dirty mattresses and old toilets. This is really what was on my street in the last 2 weeks.
