Vintage finds meet Rimfrost and Skimra

A $15 pair of crystal lamps missing the majority of their crystals couldn't be left behind at a flea market - they were so pretty and I figured it would be easy enough to find crystals to replace those that were missing. Well, I found them all right - averaging about $5 EACH so so much for my bargain!!

While roaming around Ikea I found a pendant light shade dripping with crystals for $12 - A Rimfrost was added to my bag of Ikea goodies.

With lots of crystal drops leftover I have a great pair of lamps for maybe a total cost of $20....what to do with all the extra sparkley goodness.....I am sure I will think of something.

This pair of dresser lamps was too good to pass up for $5 - and I needed them like I need a hole in my head, but for $5 whats a guy to do? $15 for re-wiring materials (they were wired with really scary rotted cloth wires!) and 2 nifty Ikea Skimra shades for $5 each (with a bit of work to make them fit a non-Ikea lamp...) and I have a fab pair of dresser lamps that seel to fit perfect on my dresser...
