Pottery Barn Lamp Knock-Off

I love this Pottery Barn lamp:


But I don't love it so much that I'd spend $149.00 on it.

You may have gathered by now that we are thrifty around here, and we're not too proud to admit it.  We shop at Goodwill.  And when you can come up with your own Pottery Barn-ish lamp for $14.00, why wouldn't you?

That's right.  $14.00.

I found this $4 lamp while I was shopping at Goodwill.  Look familiar?

Well, ok, maybe not yet.  But after a little deglosser...

...And a $10 lampshade from Target...

Not bad!  I liked the base white, so rather than painting it, I just got a darker lampshade.  I love how it turned out, and even more, I love that it saved me $135.00!
