I had picked up two rusty brass lamps from a flea market for FREE. I took them home not knowing if they worked or not. To my delight when I plugged them up, the light bulb came on! Sweet! (that really is what I said)
I failed to take a before picture. I wish you could have seen these lamps. The bottom was rusted and by all means, they should have been headed to the dump. I cleaned them up the best I could. I used a wire brush to get the loose rust off. I primed them and painted them a glossy black.
|The finished product! They are so sleek and pretty. The lamp shades were only $5.00!! You cannot beat that price either.|
Now I just have to find a place for these two lamps.
I don't really think that will be too much trouble.
