Red jewel from Goodwill

A few years ago I found a pretty funky vintage lamp at Goodwill without a lampshade for $6. I have never had the right spot for it, but finally decided to use it on my new checkerboard table I showed HERE yesterday. In addition, the vignette includes the chair I re-did a few weeks back. That can be seen HERE.

All it needed was some dusting and a new lampshade. I added some rosettes I made from a drop cloth to the shade.

Have you had the chance to check out my GIVEAWAY this week going until February 13th from RUPiper Designs...


  1. Your vignette looks fabulous. I love the red lamp,it paid off to hold on to your lamp until you found the perfect spot. That chair is awesome!

  2. it adds the perfect pop of color!!! what a bargain, too!

  3. Oh, I <3 your lamp! But I must admit a craving for more rosettes . . . the ones you have on the shade are so pretty and perfectly frayed, I want more more more! lol Like a solidly packed border top & bottom, or a double or triple row along the bottom of the shade. As my favorite aunt always says: "If a little bit's good, a lot's much better!" ;o)

    Mmmmm . . . I just love that lamp!

  4. Love the color! So gorgeous with your new checkerboard table!
    You should come link up at my Linky Love Friday party at my blog :)

    Take care.

  5. Hi, new follower here, via My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia. I love what you do! It's totally up my alley. I also had a dream of refinishing furniture, but I have too many other things to pursue. I do refinish the occasional piece.

    Love your blog! I will also visit your Etsy shop.

  6. Beautiful vignette looks beautiful.
