"The Score" with Keller-Creative

I love this redo I am about to show you! It goes to show what a good eye and a little patience can produce. Let me introduce The talented Kim from Keller-Creative.  She came a cross this lamp, "Ole Eagle Eyes" as she calls it, while at Goodwill...

 Despite it being "quite possibly the ugliest lamp I have ever seen", she saw the potential.
She sprayed it white, first covering the eagle and globe, than decided to paint the eagle white too...

 She got some paint on the globe, and upon wiping it off learned the amber color was just a film. This lead to heavy scrapping...
And BAM... the eagle has landed.
She added a beautiful shade she recovered herself and viola, an amazing transformation...

Serious Cinderella story.  AND the best part? The lamp was only $2.98.
Lets reflect..


Yeah, seriously good.

Kim works a lot of magic. Check out this soap dispenser she made from a plain generic ceramic one with the help of painters tape and spray paint...

And her awesomeness doesn't stop there. She also has an Etsy shop filled with gorgeous earrings she makes...


Truly inspired by her talent and creative eye. Now go stop over at Keller-Creative an tell Kim how much she rocks!

Thanks for sharing Kim!!!

Oh yeah, she is definitely a rockstar DIYer! I adore this lamp makeover and I'm completely impressed with her eye...I would've left that sucker right where he was! But with a little creativity, BAM. Pure awesome sauce.

That is a girl with a serious eagle eye. I can usually sniff out a great find in a thrift store but I don't think I would have considered this one. Awesome!

I did the same thing this weekend to some similar lamps from Goodwill. They were intended for my husband's den, but I loved them so much that I claimed them for the living room instead.
