~Silver Leaf Lamp's New Home~

Remember the thrift store lamp that went from this

to this using black spray paint and silver leaf? 

(Want to silver leaf? Read how I did it here)

Let me refresh your memory with a trip down memory lane.


This lamp, from now on referred to a "she" was not wanted in our bedroom by a certain husband. He loathed this lamp and sent her to the garage.

She has finally taken up residence on a Craigslist find in my daughter's soon to be finished bedroom. 

I think she goes well with this lamp I found at Homesense. 

They make such a nice pair...

What is icing on the cake is that I am spotting this style of lamp in decor magazines and on various sites. 

Like this one from the etsy seller from fabulousmess

or this one via decorpad

or these vintage lamps via design*sponge

Ahhh... great minds think alike.


  1. I loved it when you first did it and I STILL think it's great! Looks wonderful in your daughter's room!

  2. I'm glad it has found a new home in your daughters room. What a shame that your hubby didn't like it, I think it's gorgeous.

  3. Natural born trend setter? ha ha! I love the lamp, can't believe your hubby disliked it so much?! It looks way better after the makeover though, a lot more glam and a lot less bulky. I love it!!

  4. I love this lamp Barbara, you did a great job with it! And I love that you found pics it was in, did you show your hubby how ahead of the game you are?? Hee hee.

  5. See! you're ahead of the game! :)

    I'd love for you to check out my blog for a fun giveaway!

  6. You're so on-trend Barbara!! HaHa!! Ever since I saw your transformation of this lamp I've been eyeing an ugly lamp sitting in my living room. I wonder if I should try it?!

  7. Your lamp looks so stylish! I really enjoyed the one time I worked with silver leaf. It's kind of fun, isn't it?
