Ever had a lamp that's just too short for your space?
You can't put a larger shade on it because that would look dumb and the scale would be all wrong.
So, what do you do?
You hack it.
On the cheap, I needed two matching lamps for our guest room.
My two daughters absolutely would NOT let me use the ones I had...
and I agreed.
I went to Tuesday morning (um...I like LOVE that place) and found two lamps that I liked.
They were not however tall enough for where I needed. But the price was right and I knew I could somehow make them work.
I think I paid 30.00 each for them (I'm serious)
I also had to paint them because I wanted gold.
So. After painting them, this is what I was left with.
a short squatty lamp. Not good. Not good at all.
So I went to a craft store and found a square box for oh about 5 bucks and painted it the same gold as the lamp.
I added a few table top books underneath it and voila!
Have a great day y'all!
