$5 Marble Lamp

I am one of those people who reads other people’s blog posts about the amazing bargains from charity shops, free roadside collections and garage sales, and think ” yeah, but that sort of thing would never happen to me, I am just not that lucky!”

WRONG!

I went to my local salvage yard on the weekend because I was told about a table that would be perfect for my outdoor entertaining area (future post, I promise!) and I happened to spy this:

I spied a chip in the top near the switch, but no price sticker, so I asked about the “marble lamp base with the chip in it?”

“Well, cause you bought the table, $5.”

“Done!” I said and fossicked in the change in my car for the cash.

When I got it home, I went through my vast collection of fabric for just the right one to cover the bargain shade I bought on impulse in Target a couple of weeks ago.

Enter one of the gorgeous fabrics I have purchased on Spoonflower (it isn’t a hoarding obsession if you eventually get around to using them, is it?).

and………. How gorgeous is this?

Now my gorgeous lamp lives in my sitting room where I can see it every day!
