From brassy to oil rubbed sassy…

I know you have one, or you got rid of one!  The brass lamps, maybe it has a glass bottom or it’s all brass.  You can change all that with a little spray paint.  I found this one at Goodwill for under $5.  I loosened all the parts, lightly sanded the brass, wrapped newspaper and tape around the areas that I didn’t want painted and sprayed away.  I don’t have any before pictures, please use your imagination.

One thing just lead to another and a theme was born.  With a little help from bobbers~

and Ebay (paint by numbers-water scenes)~

A navy and white (just says Lake House) quilt from Big Lots, pillows from TJ Maxx~

And to think it all started with Oil Rubbed Sassy (formally known as Brassy)!

Once again Murphy approved!

Get inspired, recycle something!  You’ll smile everytime you look at it!

    That lamp is great! The bobbers make it playful and add nice splash of color. I love that you recycled too. It’s the only way to go with home decor!

    What a cute idea to use the bobbers in the lamp. I also love the paint by numbers, those are very collectible. Your quilt just fits right in with the theme. So cute! Thanks for linking up!

    I love it! AND I have two of these sitting on the floor waiting for a facelift. (I wouldn’t let it set foot in a bedroom until I did something about them. They could of been well on their way to Goodwill by the end of the month if I hadn’t read this. Thanks!
