I bought this lamp - it was already cute - but it needed some attention.
It did not have a shade - jus' a rusty ole' harp...
The base was chipped and loose...
I had a new red shade that I put polka-dots on (imagine that)...
I added some red, green and gold to the rooster. I painted the base black, distressed it and added some varnish. I tightened it up so it was nice and sturdy too.
And ta-da - That lil' rooster is standing proud. I love this weather vane lamp - and I'm gonna have to restrain myself from keeping it. So for now - it's in the shop.
So this is my first post of a lil' something I'm gonna try and start - it's "What's in "store" Wednesday. I'll try and give you a sneak peek into something special at the shop each Wednesday. Now approaching the busiest season of the year for us - I'm probably making you a promise that's gonna be hard to keep - but I'll give it my best - promise!!!
Wishing you a blessed Wednesday!
You all had such nice comments about this - thank you so much - a lot of people called and e-mailed from out of state wanting it - I was so surprised. But I sold it to the first one to call which happened to be my great local friend, Donna. Early bird gets the worm I guess. Glad you all liked it!!!!
