We've had these two cheap target lamps since we first moved in together. We didn't even pay anything for them; we found them on the side of the road near our apartment. I wasn't really loving them in our new living room but floor lamps are not cheap! (and we needed 2) so we decided to make due for now.
I picked up a can of Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint and went to town....
Big difference in only about 10 minutes....but they still looked like well, cheap target lamps.
These shades that came with the lamps I bought for our bedroom....but I hated them on those lamps and had already bought other shades - these were just sitting in our basement.
Have you completed any dirt cheap make-overs recently?
