I have seriously been on the hunt for a beautiful gold lamp and all of them are a tad pricey (ranging from $150 up to $350). I just knew I could DIY it for less and get the same look without the panic attack and long commitment (sorry Mr. Lamp I don't do long term decor relationships). Here is the look of the lamp I wanted. The lil' adjustable knobs make me swoon.
Here is what I used to make one for less.
The results made me really excited because the savings helped me to make my bedroom redo budget stretch more.
I was even able to get all of the little knob details on it. The total time I spent for this project was less than two hours (because all I had to do was rub the rub-n-buff on the metal lamp with a cloth and let dry). And my cost was $35.
Not too bad right?! And now with the money saved I decided to recover a bench for the foot of my bed and add some tufting. Can't wait to share that project with you all soon. It's almost finished.
I hope your week is treating you with kindness because you all deserve it.
