Lamp Re-do!

Have you ever seen a lamp like this?!
I was intrigued from the moment I spotted it...
it was so UGLY that I had to do something with it!
I am easily fascinated by ugly items that are cheap!
Shiny things also have a tendency to make me daze..but that's another project!
Here is the LOVELY before:

Here is the even more LOVELY after:

My mom and sister were with me when I got this cheap lamp...they were doubting that it could ever look good I think!
There is a huge lamp shade that goes with it, but I am not sure yet how I want to finish the shade, so that will come later this week!
When I have the whole lamp together (shade and all) it is about 4.5 feet tall! It is the craziest lamp I have ever seen!
I love it!
P.S. I am trying hard to not paint something turquoise and glaze it, but I'm addicted to both those things...can't help it!
Next time...maybe. NOT!
Have a Happy Wednesday!

I'm linking to all those awesome parties on the right side of my blog! Come join us!

Very cool! I love how it turned out. I always see ugly stuff at Goodwill or wherever and wonder if I could somehow make it look good. Very inspiring! Stop by when you get the chance:

God love you! That thing is so ugly, I wouldn't have given it a second glance. You did a great job re-vamping it. It will make a great focal piece.

OOO!Love it! I don't think there is anything too ugly to be made beautiful by turquoise paint.

I'm a big fan of turquoise right now too, and I never ceased to be amazed at what a good coat of paint can do!

I can't wait to see it all done. I LOVE it so far. It's so funky that it's fabulous. I love the color that you used!!

That is some unusual lamp. I'll bet it looks great when you're done.
