A Thrifty "Before and After"

As I was out and about the other day,I spied this big ol ugly out dated lamp at the Salvation Army for a measly $2.00!I instantly fell in love with its shape and texture and knew what I had to do.Sooo home we went and with just two steps of primer and Valspar Gloss Exotic Sea I now am the proud owner of a Fabulous new lamp:) The best part is the total price was UNDER $10.00,what a steal huh? Well here are the before and after shots enjoy!
