AKA Thrift Store Lamp DIY! So a few weeks back I was dreaming about buying a few Kate Spade pieces for my home. I love her aesthetic, always have. Then I saw the prices! $570 for a lamp! Are you kidding me? Do you also want my first child? Right then I realized that with a little elbow grease and some MAXX GLOSS paint, I could create that very same lamp for about $25 bucks. Less if I could find the shape at a thrift store. BTW, I hit 6 thrift stores and could not find this shape (because I was looking for it). The following week, after the project was done, I found 3 of them! If you're not having any luck, head to Target.com or LampsPlus.com and check out the sale items. This column shape is very popular and MAXX GLOSS will cover anything. Have fun!
