From Brass to Class

I picked up this goodie at a garage sale for one whole dollar! I knew that with a little tlc she could be beautiful.
I got out my trusty Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint and went to town.

Ahh much better. Now she just needs a pretty shade.
I found this shade over the summer at a flea market for $7. Looks perfectly new too. :)
And here she is in her new found glory.
She looks much more expensive than $8 right. :)
She adds so much to this little table and seating area.
There is now height and a beautiful and functional focal point.
From Brass to Class sums it up perfectly don't you think?


  1. I love my ORB paint too and your lamp is lovely. Great shade too. Looks fabulous. Hugs, Marty

  2. Looks FABULOUS!Ive got a brushed brass lamp here on my desk thats very similar in shape to yours. I found mine, brand new on Craigslist, in the box for $5. Its awaiting its own makeover:) Love the ORB.
