Trash to treasure light fixture

Randy is doing a bathroom renovation for one of his customers. They were having Randy throw away their old light fixture. Thankfully it made it into my hands before it went to the dump.

Although it was dirty and had paint all over it, I knew I could fix it up and change the look....





I lightly sanded the raised paint of the lamp base. I used an SOS pad to get the paint off the glass shade. A little white spray paint and some distressing resulted in this:





It's hanging in my newly painted BATHROOM.

One day left to enter my Ooh La la Company GIVEAWAY.

  14. I love the look of the lights. Really vintage. It's something that you really should put in your bathroom. I can see why you did that.
