Unfortunately, with the changing of the clocks that doesn't leave me enough daylight to take "after" pictures, unless I want to wait for the weekend; and I don't. After the wood fill dried, I sanded the lamp and then spray painted with Rustoleum Black, satin finish.
On a trip to Target this week, I found a lamp that was similar in height and used it to model some lampshades. This lovely was the winner. At $19.99 for the shade and $4.99 for the lamp, it still makes for a great bargain!
What a great table lamp and I really love the shape. I hope my daughter enjoys it!

Kathy, The lamp transformation is wonderful. Your daughter will love it for sure. Great job!
The lamp turned out great.... Don't you wish there was a neverending supply of cheap lampshades at Goodwill?? I've had to pay more for shades than lamps A LOT lately, but that one is perfect for the cute black lamp.
Very nice! I have been looking for a tall lamp to go in my half bath at GW and other thrifts but to no avail as of yet. This one you found is just wonderful! I love it black too! Wonderful choice on the shade as well. It will look great wherever you put it. Great transformation!
Fabulous, Kathy! LOL, funny isn't it, we find great bargains for the base but have to pay more for the shade!
One of these days I'm going to have to make it back down to Goodwill.
The lamp looks great. You picked out the perfect shade to go with it.
I know what you mean about no daylight now for pictures. I hate taking photos without natural light and I don't want to wait for the weekends to take photos either.
Have a wonderful weekend.
You turned a blah lamp into a classic! It looks great!
Oh, it looks gorgeous. Love the lamp and the shade. Shades are so hard for me, and you picked a great one. Hugs, Marty
it looks great! and your counter tops are identical to mine I think.lol
Hi Kathy! What a pretty transformation! You found the perfect shade and the base looks awesome in black! I bet she's gonna love it.
Hi Kathy! Oh I love me a black lamp! :-) You did an awesome job and it is so funny because ever since I started blogging I feel like I am always on the look-out for what I can spray-paint! It's addicting! :-)
LOVE IT!! Love the black with the burlap colored shade...the perfect combination and a great transformation....I don't think I have bought a lamp in a retail store in two years!
She will love it!

Love your new lamp.. it's a great bargain at 15... I always have trouble with shades!!! Thanks for dropping in..
Great lamp redo. I am sure your daughter will love it. Thanks for stopping by "In His Grip" :o)
Wow it turned out great! I love the finished project with the great shade. You are a visionary I think I would have looked seen the crack in the base and just left it. Great idea to use the wood filler and make a beautiful black lamp.
That lamp looks great - what would we do without paint!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your weekend.
I have to pop into your Goodwill more!
Love revamping lamps! And I do love that shade...nicely done! -shaunna :)
It looks fantastic and I'm sure she will love it! I've been keeping my eyes open for a Goodwill lamp to redo too.
Great transformation!! I love your "new" lamp. :) I'm having the same trouble with the time change. Have to stop taking pictures by 4:30 and it stinks! haha.

Perfect! I love pairing old bases with new shades. Great transformation!!
I love how the lamp turned out...and you are right it has such a sophisticated shape! Great job!

Kathy honey your daughter will love this lamp. I love how you redid it. You are right that is a bargain. I so need to get my creative juices out especially since the holidays are here.
Hope your weekend is going great
Hi Kathy! Great redo on the lamp...your daughter should love it. Thank you for your comments on the house I decorated. It was a bit scary on that tall ladder. I could barely reach the top! Thank you for praying for little Lily too. What a precious little baby. I am praying for a miracle.
You asked about the chip and dip and Christmas cookies platter...I thought about selling them online, but like you, was not sure about the shipping. I would hate for them to get broke! They just throw those boxes! The brand is Mud Pie if you want to check them out online. They have some adorable stuff!
Thanks again for your visit. Sorry I haven't been by in a while! I'm missing being able to sit down and visit my favorite blogs. Take care, Kristen
Well I certainly love it.. what a difference changing the color made.. what are the chances you'd come here for a few days and change all of my stuff:) please...
its beautiful and your daughter will adore it..
PS.. would you be willing to share where you found the smaller harlequin paper you have on the back of your craft table. I love it and need something to put in a small corner cabinet I am working on... thanks so much..
You transformed that lamp into a beauty!
Thank you so much for all that you share. The colors in your home are the same as my own. I'm peaking in the background at wall colors as I ready to paint. I am helpless at this type of thing and appreciate so much your photographs. Your lamp looks new! Wonderful ideas here! Elizabeth
Spectacular transformation Kathy! Looks completely different!
Lucky daughter to have mom shopping AND diying for her! Like the new look!
Great job. Once again, I never find anything at GW!
Wow! You have magic hands. All the things you touch turn into something beautiful. Thanks for sharing this post :)
