DIY Lamp Repurpose


My love for Goodwill is no secret-
I have found some really cool lamps and candlesticks there recently, and ideas started popping in my head- So, you gotta go with that right?  Doesn't happen that often- teehee

Started with these-


After cutting the cord and plug off, removing the shade harp, I added a styrofoam ball to the top-



I added faux greens and silk flowers- cool topiary-




Adding a faux pumpkin makes a unique Halloween piece-




Loved this lamp base- very shabby chic!




I took apart this lamp base to use the elements of the lamp I liked best-

Then the pumpkin is hot glued to the base-




With this candlestick, I added prelit candles and berries and leaves-



This tiny lamp base made a perfect base for a short fruit topiary-


I love creating home decor out of Goodwill finds- makes your piece one of a kind, and
shopping at Goodwill helps to create jobs-
  You get a real workout for your creative brain-
all wins in my book-

Visit your local thrift stores to find that perfect object
to repurpose into something special for your home!

Take care, gotta fly-
