Look at my fun project!! I found this lamp at the DI (I actually started sanding it and remembered I needed to take a picture of it first,oops!) I've been needing a lamp by my bed so I can read at night. I've been using Tim's iPhone because it has a stupid flashlight application and I have to awkwardly hold it using my chin to make it useful! It was marked for $5 but I asked if I could get it for $3 since it didn't have a shade. Sweet!
Then I painted it to this...now I know most of you are probably thinking that I didn't improve it at all, but for me, it matches my bedroom perfectly :)
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I was a little timid about the shade I found at first because I was having a hard time even finding one in general, but after Tim put it on, I knew it was perfect!
