Tabletop Tuesday and White Wednesday

I got this lamp at a garage sale on Memorial Weekend. The lady was asking $25 for it.

I offered her $10. She said, "oh honey, it's practically new, would you give me $15? I said yes!

She said she paid over $100 for it about a year ago, and it had set in her guest room, not being used. She put the cutesy little bows on it, and the shades are obviously very well made.

But, I have other plans for this lamp. Striped down, she looks MUCH better in my eyes. And after a couple of cans of paint ...........

She is now my "dream lamp"! And fits in with my other lamps in that room as you can see below! is where you will find more White Wednesday posts, and is where you will find the Tabletop Tuesday posts. Enjoy!
