I was in my local Goodwill a few weeks ago and spotted this
yucky brass beauty high up on the shelf just begging to be taken home and turned into something beautiful. For only $3.00, I snatched it right up and took it home.
I had remembered seeing a fixture like this turned into a cute lantern somewhere in blogland and decided that is what it would be. So, I proceeded to take out all the lighting parts, which I saved just in case I figure out something to do with them, and broke out the black spray paint. The part on top was in 3 pieces, so I just superglued them together. I didn’t even cover the glass…I just sprayed and then when it was dry, scraped the glass with a razor blade.
And…drumroll….this is how it turned out. Gotta love spray paint!
Since its Fall, I added in some little pumpkin, apple, and sprigs I picked up at Michael’s. I love it!
What have you picked up at a thrift store lately that you’ve transformed?
