Jenny from Evolution of Style came across a couple of lamps that both boasted unique architectural bases, distressed finishes… and two hundred dollar price tags! She then came across a lamp base with a similar shape from Goodwill for only $4.99 and knew she could work some magic on it with chalk paint. Jenny layered two colors to create a beautiful weathered effect that also happens to remind me of Restoration Hardware’s delectable finishes.

On a recent visit to the thrift store, Brandi from Don’t Disturb This Groove found a pineapple gold leaf lamp. She had no problems painting over the finish and searched the internet for inspiration.

Virginia says, “The whole project took less than 30 minutes, and my little $3 thrift store lamp has been transformed into a high-style lamp you would find in any home store for about $40-$50!”
