One of the great things about shopping at yard sales and thrift stores is that the items are often so cheap you’ve really got nothing to lose by trying to upcycle them. That’s exactly how Jessica from Mad in Crafts felt when she found a $2.99 table lamp and shade at Goodwill that was the height she wanted and had similar detailing to a PB lamp. Jessica prettied up the base with some oil rubbed bronze spray paint and then added copper accents like that of her inspiration. For the shade, it took some faux suede and an embroidered initial to bring it new life.
Jessica was inspired by the Sutter Adjustable Lever Table & Bedside Lamp Base from Pottery Barn.
