Like I mentioned, I've been wanting a glass lamp for a while now. But, as you saw in the last post about glass lamps, the price tag is high, and I simply just wasn't willing to pay it.
So, while walking around Goodwill, I found this lamp base:
It was so plain.. I though maybe, just maybe I'd be able to be able to make something out of it. And for $3.99? It was placed in my cart.
And then the inspiration hit. Hurricane vases!
I played around with a few different ones I found on the shelves until I found these three (ignore cake stand):A little hot glue and a 39 cent lamp shade, also from Goodwill, and this is what I came up with:
It's perfect! And I love it WAY more than the other lamps because of the price tag: $8!! Not bad, eh?
