Two-Tone Painted Lamp Makeover

You can probably commiserate with Erin of Erin on the Run when she says, “I’m just a fashionable lady with expensive home decor tastes living on a DIY budget.”

She was in need of a lamp for her bedroom makeover and found just the one while browsing online at Anthropologie.

Thankfully, DIY means you don’t have to pay $178 for the look you want.

Erin instead headed to Goodwill and found a lamp base for only$1.59! She made it over with textured spray paint and white acrylic paint for a very similar look to her Anthro inspiration!

Erin was inspired by the Aliso Lamp Ensemble from Anthropologie.
