Don't ya just love it when two junk items come together to make something beautiful!?  I found the lampshade at the Seattle Goodwill Outlet Store.  Yes, can you believe we have a Goodwill Outlet?!  It's a fantastic place for junkers!  You have to dig through bins, and you need to wear gloves because there is ALOT of dirt and dust, oh but it is absolutely worth it, you can find amazing items!  Anyway, sorry I got off track, but I LOVE the Goodwill Outlet Store!  So, I placed my lampshade discovery on a vintage glass lamp I found at Value Village and lo and behold a beautiful Shabby Chic Lamp was born! 

Pattern or design used: My own design - Urban Iron Art & Newtiques

Candy, That's great that you have a Goodwill Outlet near you too! I only discovered ours (through a friend) a few months ago, and have gone almost every Saturday since!

Sue - Thanks for the comment about the light - I thought so too!

Have a great evening everyone - I'm off to watch the Bachelor Finale'....gotta love the local guy Jason Mesnik! Posted: 10:09 pm on March 2nd
fellowjunker writes: Your lamp turned out beautifully. I love the glass base that you found........I don't think I could exist without Value Village. A lot of the junk stores that I used to frequent have closed up around here due to poor sales so I rely on the thrift stores a lot!!! I will definitely have to make a trip to your Seattle Goodwill....I hear there are a couple of GREAT flea markets near Seattle as well!!!!
