A Drab To Fab Country Lamp Makeover
Today’s before and after story is one for the birds! A few months ago I found this 1980’s Country Rooster Table Lamp looking outdated, sad and pitiful.
I love just about anything that has to do with Roosters or Chickens and have incorporated them into my kitchen and dining room. When I saw this fowl lamp I knew I could give it new life, scooped it up and brought it home. The rooster base was actually ok and could have stayed “as is” but I had something else in mind for him
The stenciled lampshade just screamed late 1980’s to early 90’s Cutesy Country and had to go.
I replaced the old lampshade with a brand new burlap shade. I embellished the shade with new stenciled roosters and some freehand Country inspired words.
Mr. Rooster got a few fresh coats of white paint and this lamp makeover was complete!
With just a few coats of paint and some creativity this vintage lamp makeover was easy peasy and wow what a difference! With so much waste in this world I am so happy to be able to breathe new life into old pieces that may end up in a landfill someday. This Redesigned Rooster Lamp is now perfect for a farmhouse kitchen or even a french country style room and can be purchased here.
