Marty is one of the best bargain hunters I know and after reading today’s post, I think I need to start visiting the thrift stores more often. There are definitely some awesome deals to be found.
I’m excited to share this guest post from my friend and fellow blogger Marty, from the blog A Stroll Thru Life. At the end of the post you’ll find a link to Marty’s blog where you’ll find lots of inspiring posts sharing fabulous ways to update your home.
Take it away, Marty!
I love a good before and after and it’s amazing to me what a difference finding just the right lampshade can make to dress up a lamp. I needed a small lamp for a table in the family room.
BEFORE : I found this one at goodwill for $4.99. I tried several shades I already had and finally settled on this one.
Perfect size and height.
Then on another trip to Goodwill, I found a gorgeous metal tole lampshade with brass inside. Stunning.
AFTER: I really couldn’t believe the price. $2.99 I think the dirt scared everyone off. After a little soap and water, I had a fabulous treasure.
This shade totally changes the look and character of the lamp. Great find.
A really nice accent to the table and the other lamps in the room.
Thanks so much for having me today Susan, this has been so much fun.
I would love for you to follow me @ A Stroll Thru Life.
