Easy as...

1,2,3!
That's how easy this project was.
Remember, this is where I began.  One crusty lamp base that the dealer simply could not believe I wanted to purchase.
I spent some time cleaning out all the nooks and crannies to make her sparkle.
Grabbed a shade from my stash which also required cleaning.
Grabbed my Gorilla Glue and beaded it along the metal socket section.
Easy and pretty.
Elevate the ordinary peeps!  Potential is all around!

At first I thought the lamp base was metal - and it was glass under there! Great project and so simple.

lol,I am always picking up something that makes the dealer say, "What do you want that for!?" I love the lamp base used like that and will be on the lookout for one.
