It takes talent to spot an old rusted lamp in a dumpster and see it for what it really is: an opportunity for a DIY project that could light up a room! Paula only took a few steps to make over this lamp she found in the trash, but definitely turned it into a simple and sophisticated treasure for her family room.

From Paula:

Last summer while I was at the beach, I found a lamp in a dumpster. I liked its shape and size and knew that with a little effort I could give it a new life. After sanding the metal parts and giving the lamp a good cleaning, a few coats of spray paint was all this lamp needed to become the star of my family room.

Thank you Paula!
