Anatomy of a Lamp

I found this lamp at Crate and Barrel a few months ago and LOVED it! But, $79 ? Um...no thanks.
Then I found this vase at HomeGoods.

$12.99

A $4 lamp from GoodWill

Disected the lamp

And put it back together

Added a $12.99 lampshade from HomeGoods

And it works!

And I love it!

I've been meaning to ask what format you use for your blog? I'm tired of having a border around my blog. I'd like a more "open" feel and not so "clutter-y". I'm SO not a blog/computer savvy person. :/

Beautiful, Janie! I LOVE what you are doing with your living room. It has changed a lot since we were there last!

What was that Martha Stewart? Oh, you think Janie should take over your show? Yeah, me too.

This is unbelievably great. Better than the inspiration lamp by far!

I am SO going to HG tomorrow! I've been ooohing an ahhing over a certain PB lamp for some time but can't get myself to pay $200 for it.

I think I can handle this! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

LOVE this DIY. What a brilliant idea. ;) And SO much cheaper. Don't know if you remember me, but we met maybe 10 years ago through a mutual "friend." :) You have a lovely family! And I enjoyed reading your blog!
