I have been busy remaking this lamp. I went to the thrift store on Friday when I was out on a BUSINESS DELIVERY (Uh Uhm......the perks of being married to the boss.)

This little lamp (12 1/2" tall) was all I found. It was $2.99, but I thought it would be perfect for the Boy's bathroom. I know, I know the boys no longer live here, but the name continues on and on.....it will always be that name to me. I always keep a little light on in all of my bathrooms. I do not like walking into dark rooms. I guess I am paranoid, but it also looks really cute!! And I am all about the cute! I have a little light in there now, but it is so lightweight, it keeps falling over. This has been on a mental list of mine to replace for awhile.

This lamp is nice and heavy. It is a nice silver color and I really wanted to keep it that way, because I am lazy and seldom find anything that is perfect the way it is. I thought it might be okay with the chrome bathroom fixtures, but no........! I decided it need to be black and it needed a shade too. So I have been painting and coating the lamp, and trying to decide what I can do with the plain white lampshade I found lying around the house. Here is a picture of the little lamp I want to replace.



Yes, I know it is leaning! I have dropped this little light a lot when dusting and it is broken, but it still working! Since it was going to be next my black wine/towel holder I thought the base should be black.

I will be back with my AFTER pictures! I hope it is soon!

You know what is awesome? Thrift store shopping finds! I need to do more of that- but I refuse to until Husband takes the stuff I want to give to goodwill... ha ha. I can't buy more things until I get rid of the old.
