lamp before and after...

after...

I love these photos Joy sent me of the makeover she gave to an old lamp that she bought from the Camberwell Markets. Some of you may love the original look (pictured below) but it just wouldn't have suited the classic/beachy style of her dining room. Isn't it amazing what a bit of paint and a new shade can do for a lamp?

Really great facelift! It looks lovely all brightened up and fresh as a daisy...

Is this the Camberwell market in Melbourne? I loved going there but havent been for ages now. After seeing your photos maybe I should go again. Beautiful job.

I love how you've aged the base... Also, I can't believe I only just discovered your blog!

Another triumph from Joy of Many Talents. Although the Melbourne Black & Grey Only police will fine her for daring to feature such a daring colour!
