Recently, I went to an estate sale in Pasadena.  There wasn’t much there to be had, but I did find this not-so-great-looking pair of brass lamps.  The shades were hideous and one of the turn switches was missing…. but at $25 for the pair, not a bad deal.  So I packed them into the Fit and brought them home.

$80 worth of lampshades later(these shades were relatively cheap, even though they cost more than the lamps themselves)

 Some super glue to re-attach the felt base pad

A new switch

Some ribbon trim and a glue gun

And voila! The perfect lamps for the guest bedroom.
