I found this brass, swing arm lamp at goodwill for 5.00.. I hesitated for a minute cause I figured it was one of those cheapo, very light, might tip over, floor lamps.. I walked over anyway and took hold of it and wow, it was HEAVY. So I knew it was a more expensive piece originally . Great- I'll take it.
I stopped my lowes and bought a can of orb spray paint- gotta love that stuff.
Lampshade from walmart was waiting for me in the storage room. Got that a few weeks before for 8 or 10,
I forget now but way cheaper than ballards:) I did a post letting ya'll know where they were and several of ya bought some.
Cleaned the brass- spray painted it 2 light coats and let that dry . I dont have a doubt this lamp as it is now would have cost between 100.00 and 150.00 .. Mine- lamp-shade-paint ,, $22.80
Sonny is a happy girl:) Its just what I wanted and needed and at a bargain price too. The daughter has tried several times to swipe it for her room but I go in there and swipe it back.. I wonder if I can find another for that price.. Maybe.
