Trash to Treasure......In the Making

I am so excited to show you my newest "home decor laboratory" specimen.....please welcome Miss. New Glass Lamp.

She is sleek, clean, and in great shape, but a little bland and boring in her current state of being.

....But do you see what I see? Can you see it? A diamond in the rough?

Nice large base, with NO chips! NONE! Zip, zilch! Nada! (which is rare for a glass lamp at a thrift store)

To you she may look like an ordinary glass lamp, but to me, this is what I see:

(L to R: Pottery  Barn,, Grandin Road)

So with the help of my handy dandy can of Looking Glass spray paint,

Looking Glass Aerosol Spray Paint 6 Ounces

I hope to give her a new lease on life so she can let her light shine!

......So what do you think? Do you think she's got what it takes???

  1. Oh she has what it takes my friend! WOW AWESOME...can't wait to see what you create in your lab!!!! : ) Really looking forward to it! hugs...

  2. Good luck, post the finished piece so we can see your vision realized.

  3. It looks like it will be awesome! Pottery barn or Crate and Barrel had clear glass lamps that they filled with stuff like sea shells or lemons or something! I love to paint things and make them totally different!

  4. Thanks everyone! There are so many things I can do with it since it is clear glass but I am really excited about the idea of making it into faux mercury glass. Cross your fingers for me! :)

  5. It looks like it will turn out to be a great idea to try! I can't wait to see it. Megan

  6. That is going to be a fabulous project! Cant wait to see it finished.

  7. Oh my! What a great find. I think it's going to look beautiful. I can't wait to see it when your done. Good luck.

  8. I'm a huge fan of Krylon Looking Glass spray paint! Your projects came out beautifully!
    I would love to have you link up with my Clever Chicks Blog Hop this week!

    I hope to see you there!

  9. oh so FUN, can't wait to see what she'll look like...I have yet to try that paint out, look FUN! :) I'm checking out your blog from the link up hop party...

    happy Friday!

  10. I think she is going to be one dandy looking lamp base by the time you've finished. Great find.

  11. Beautiful! Love the lamp and absolutely love Looking Glass Spray Paint! I appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
