A couple weeks ago I got a little tip from my Aunt (who by the way is another junking fanatic) her church was putting on a huge rummage sale to help raise money for kids to go to camp.
I showed up almost an hour before the doors opened and was still in the back of a huge line.  Though there were tons of other people to contend with, I did manage to pick up a few things for a whopping total of $15 bucks!!
One of the things was an old globe with a dent in it. Junk to most right?  Who really wants a glob with a dent in it right!?  Well, I snagged it for $1 and check out what I did with it!

I had a little kid moment, while I was taking the glob apart.  I wanted to see just how this thing worked.  After getting it apart I was able to pop that dent right back out.

I painted the inside of the glob a shiny metallic blue, and lined the edges with some brown ribbon.
Poof! Lamp Shades!
As fun as these are, they will be up in the shop soon.  Just as soon as I can find a cheep pair of lamp bases that aren't ones that I want to keep.  Non the less, I wanted to share what I pulled off with only $1.
