I received a thrift store lamp and basket in the mail from one of my favorite blogger friends as part of a Flea Market Swap with several other bloggers. Our challenge was to make over the items we received into something fabulous! I got pretty lucky with my items. Today I'm sharing what I did with the lamp. I paired it with a thrift store frame I already had to create something completely new:
Pretty much as soon as I saw the lamp, I knew I wanted to repurpose it into something completely new. I cut off the cord and removed the lamp parts almost right away. Then it sat there for several days until the threaded tip gave me an idea.
That's when I went searching in my stash for a frame. This one was perfect since it's pretty thick. I drilled a hole using a 3/4" drill bit.
Then I spray painted both pieces and added a piece of chalkboard to the frame. The frame screwed right onto the threaded end of the lamp! Perfect!
