lamp project




This was meant to be a before and after post but the before shot was as above but in...well, brown wood. Now as you can see, it has had the full 'slap a bit of white paint on, sand it down a bit and finish off with wax' treatment. Saved from a skip and destined for our rapidly filling land fill site, it is now giving much joy in my living room. You can see my other 'Save our Landfill' projects in an earlier post here.

That's beautiful. Looks like alot of hard work - hope you had a large cup of tea after! xx

Oh you're too kind! It probably took less than hour - it's the very shabby chic look. Well worth a large cup of tea though.
