Fixed Up Lantern

Last week there was Garage Sale in the village I grew up. We didn't participate ourselves this year (my daughters make bracelets every year for sale and I crochet some small things they can sell, because I think it's a good way to teach them about money), because I thought it would be nice to walk around the village this time to look for children's books. We found some books, but I also found a beautiful lantern, that would look perfect above the coffee table in our living room.

I painted it black and bought a nice looking LED light bulb for it and this is how the lantern looks now.

Unfortunately the spiral light bulb was a bit too big to fit through the small opening in the lantern, so I have to buy another one, but for now this not so splendid looking bulb will do. I just love my new old lamp! 


  1. The lamp is perfect, love it! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  2. This is very nice. Isn't it wonderful how a new coat of paint can make it new again.

  3. It always feels great to make something old new again! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Great job....a little paint and love goes a long way.

  5. I LOVE it! You did a fabulous job making it look like new again. Thanks for sharing it at the Whimsical Wednesdays Link Party! Have a great week!
