Vintage Lamp Redos

I've been super busy getting things ready for my space at The Desert Cottage. I'm having so much fun redoing vintage floor lamps! Here's a lamp redo I just finished for the store. I really, really wanted to keep it! It sold just in a few days and that is a good thing, but I still wanted one for myself!
 I've had this floor lamp for many years. I was thinking it could definitely use an update!
I decided to redo this one and keep it. This is the before photo. At least I remembered to take a before picture! I keep forgetting to do that! 
I'm really happy how it turned out. It seems funny ripping the shades off, though… I'm sure my mom would think I'm crazy!
Here's a few more vintage lamps I've been working on.
I so wish I had remembered to take before photos!
They were all in really bad shape!
Here's a table lamp I just redid. I painted it white, but decided not to rip the shade off and just add embellishments! They are all for sale now in space #31 over at The Desert Cottage!

I'm Over at The Desert Cottage Now!

I thought after the wedding was over things would actually start to settle down a bit. In some ways they did, as I was not constantly thinking and preparing for the wedding everyday. However, right after the wedding I decided to visit the new antique/vintage store which had just opened up in our town. 
After taking just a few steps inside... I fell in love! The Desert Cottage is packed full of beautiful vintage treasures and one-of-a-kind finds… definitely my kind of place! Anyway, a few days later I found myself with the opportunity to rent a space here! So, I moved out of my other store and into The Desert Cottage! Here's a view of my new space!
