Friday Freebie

Found myself this cute little black lampshade, sitting by it's lonesome, on the curb.



I knew I had a special lamp that it could be added to, just sitting on a shelf in my garage. This lamp needed some work though...



I got it for a steal on 50% off day at the Goodwill~just under $2.00!



I love, love, love the roses, but the gold had to go.



I taped up the cord, and the light bulb socket.





Out to The Spray Paint Place for some primer, paint and poly...



I paired them up and popped them up on top of my piano.



What a great team they make!
