Would You Buy It Wednesday

This week I have a lonely little lamp I picked up at GW for $1.99. It works great though and the base unscrews from the wooden part to make painting a bit easier. I'm thinking some ORB on the base, and then a coat or two of blue paint...and then would love to pick up an inexpensive lampshade and cover with fabric. Any thoughts?


I also have some after pics of my little box from last week. I used AS Chalk Paint in "Aubusson Blue" for the outside, and "Country Grey" for the houndstooth pattern on the lid as well as the inside.

Here's the before again:


And the after:




Thanks so much for stopping by!

interesting lamp. One can never have too many lamps

Lamps are always a good choice for a good makeover - something colorful for sure. Love the makeover on the box - houndstooth is totally underused in my opinion ;)

Love the box makeover! I think a burlap covered lampshade would look cute after the lamp is painted.

I don't know, the heart was so cute ;) ;) The houndstooth is darling! Is it a stencil? I'm excited to get started on my jewelry box!
