Yard sale lighting


I have an affection for lighting in general. I loved the lighting store as a child. For this little girl, no tiara could hold a candle to looking up to see hundreds of sparkling chandeliers in a lighting showroom. I started collecting lamps a few years ago. I pick them up at yard sales when I see them and hang on to them until I (or someone) needs them. Here are a few of my finds from this summer.
$1. Money well spent. No rewiring necessary. Just some spray primer, bronze and candy apple red Rustoleum. Check out the after in red.

A friend was looking for a yellow pair of lamps. I picked these up for $1.00 each.

This one I found at Home Goods. I added some rope from the hardware store to give it some more character.

The Brimfield lamp before. I did pay a bit more for this one, $20 and had to rewire it, but I LOVED the antique wood pedestal and the gourd shape.
