There are just times in life when you just need a new topper.
In the life of a lamp, which brings such wonderful light into any matter,.there still comes a time for change.
This is a second post in Diamond Designs on a Dime.
My lamps have survived many knocks and bruises. I mean, try to life in a household with boys...basketballs and baseballs flying. Even if the residences of the home didn't send the lamp's parts flying at times...well let's say their friends could do some damage.
So with mixed emotions I decided that the memories from all the knocks over the past 16 year showed too much on the shades of our lamps. I just couldn't part with the bases at this time, having paid toooooooooooooo much for them years ago. But one too many tumbles had called for attention and updating of my light shiners.
Easy fix.....new lamp shades from Tuesday Morning.
I removed the old shades and traded them out. I took the finial at the top and painted them back instead of the gold color from past years.
Another new topper was a thrift store find and "dressing it up" for my kitchen.
Now all I need is to paint thrift store $4.00 base to bring in my retro-blue.
Now to add some more spice to the lamp shade.
A new lamp for my kitchen.
Look what some hot glue and pom pom fringe can do to a thrift store find....total cost $10.00.
