A Vintage Lamp Redo

 This candelabra lamp is my most recent redo project from a yard sale find!
This is the way it looked when I found it at a yard sale for $8.00. The wiring seemed to be old though, so my husband had to rewire it for me. I knew I would be painting the lamp white, but wasn't quite sure what to do about shades. But, when I was in Hobby Lobby the other day....
I found these cute little shades on sale for 50% off!  I thought they would look perfect with the vintage script graphic I used on the candle covers. I was inspired by Rebecca at A Gathering Place and what she did using this vintage graphic on her recent lamp makeover. Everything she does is amazing and I am always inspired by her endless creativity!
So here it is all finished!
Of course, I had to make a new vignette for the table to go with my new lamp!

I found your blog via Counting Your Blessings - Lovely Blogs. The photo of the yellow walls, white sofa and colorful accents could be a room in my house.
