Guest Bedroom Lamp Update

The teeny tiny lamp we originally had in the guest bedroom just wasn't doing it anymore. So after a little price shopping I decided it would be much thriftier to use a lamp I already had.

This lamp (along with it's twin) was originally housed in our master bedroom once upon a time when we were apartment dwellers. I don't know what I was thinking buying that lampshade. Shame on me!

After a coat of glossy red paint and a lamp shade I found on clearance at Target, she's a completely different lamp! Viola!

Cost Breakdown:
Lamp Shade = $13
1 can of spray paint = $3
Total Cost = $16 



  1. Pretty Lamp update :) Looks great, thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. Thanks! And thanks to you too for stopping by my blog! :)

  3. Thanks! I tried going back to Target to buy another one, but they were sold out by the time I went back, so sad :(

  4. What a great transformation! I love red, white and black. Very chic. And the shape of that new shade completely changes the lamp (in a good way!).

  5. Thanks Madigan! You're totally right, the new lamp shade does completely change the lamp. I don't know what I was thinking buying the original lamp shade! Lol
