Thrifty Thursday: cheap light fixture!

Here are my finds from Value Village last week:


a lovely, brassy light fixture - $4.04

a cute little birdhouse - $1.01

a set of 4 placemats - $0.99 for the set! (I absolutely love this store’s selection and prices on table linens!


No, I do not plan on putting that brassy light fixture in my house! :) Not without a SERIOUS makeover!

Check out this Pottery Barn light fixture for $269.  Look similar?  That’s what I was thinking too! :)

And that brass disappeared as soon as I got a chance to get it outside to spray paint.

This is what it looks like now clothed in ORB glory! :)


Still trying to decide if I should leave the glass out or put it back in.  Now I just need to get it installed!


  1. Wow, what a transformation! Love it!

  2. Man, ORB is amazing!! Looks a trillion times better!

  3. I think it looks great now. I would probably like it without the glass. It looks like a bird cage. I'm all about the birds.
