I aquired a vintage lamp from an antiques store in North Patk and repurposed to fit a Master Bedroom.  The floor lamp was in grest shape except it needed a new shade and the black finish had seen better days.  So, we purchased spray paint with primer to save time in the painting process.  The new shade we found at Lowe’s and surprisingly it really blends well with the natural fibers of the Master Bedroom decor.  The total cost:

Lamp: $20 
New Shade: $11 
Paint: $4.50
Total: $35.50 
A new lamp of this style can run between $90-$300 depending on the manufacture.  Not bad for a anyone on a budget.
