Vintage Tin Lamp Redo

This was a VERY easy redo lamp....
I found this vintage TIN lamp...remember these...not sure of the year they were popular....
when I first saw it I thought for sure I would paint it....
but when I brought it home I love the vintage shabby pink color...
so of course I added some netting....made into a bow...
I love bows and netting....
and a crystal.....I think at one time this crystal was a Christmas ornament.....
and another net bow with (my favorite) pink satin roses....I love the color of the roses and the softness of the pink.....

THE BEFORE...
....I turned the shade around to hide the daisies...they were cute in their day but not my style at the moment.....I paid $14 for the lamp.....I love my new addition....you never know it may have a new home someday !!!!!!
Have a wonderful day...
Hugs,
Mo :-)

Hi Mo! Always love seeing you on my blogroll! Love your lamp. Yes I remember them... you were lucky to find it already in pink! I have seen them in many other colors too. I can't believe your sofa redo has been a year already either! Time flys when your having fun my dear, xoxo~Kathy @ Sweet Up-North Mornings...

Hi Mo, The lamp is so pretty, and just the right color. Leave it to you to make it even prettier than it was to begin with. I can't believe it's been a year since your sofa project. It's so beautiful! I'm looking for quilts to redo mine, you've inspired me to try it! I've made slipcovers in the past, so I think I can.
