Sure it's ugly now...

I found this little number at Stein Mart today. (This is a terrible picture but I am too lazy to take another) The shop elsewhere price was $149 and the SM price was $79. No joke.

A piece of adornment on the swirly arm was broken off (and for the fact that it is plain ugly) so it was on clearance. Add in my coupon and I picked up this little woofer for $20.

Had I not been inspired by so many "trash to treasure" makeovers on all the many blogs that I love to read, then this lamp would have never even gotten a first glance from me.

BUT imagine a touch up paint job of some sort, a different plate and/or painting the existing plate with chalkboard paint, removing that gawwwwwdy scroll thing at the bottom.

If I hurry and complete this project then I can use this plate that I saw at Dillards and can't stop dreaming about...
