#Goodwillfinds and #PBHacks

It's no secret that I LOVE a good bargain. I love projects. But most importantly, I love finding or recreating expensive things for low prices!

This week I wanted to share my lamps!

I had only been in TX a couple of days and Honey had to go out of town for business. So, what's a girl to do? Shop!! I strolled around in Pottery Barn and saw these pretties:

I really liked them! I did not like their $150+ price tag (plus the shade).

Well, imagine my surprise when the next day at a Goodwill (one of 3 I went to in 1 day) I found this gem:

Not exact, but I liked it. I liked even more for $4.99.

So I decided to go back to PB and compare the two. I decided to buy the same shade at PB and add it to my lamp. $38 for the shade was a little rich for me but I decided the overall price would still be doable.

My #PBhack:

 And a side by side comparison:

Well...what's better than one fabulous lamp??? TWO fabulous lamps! The next day (at another Goodwill) I found this beauty (which I think is from Target) for $12.99. I went back to PB and got a larger shade (same gray burlap for $43):

So, for just under $100 I have about $400 worth of PB look-a-like lamps. 

What about you? Have you hacked any PB items lately?

I actually like your goodwill finds better than the PB ones! Good job!
