What a Steal!
Eddie loves to transform castoffs into masterpieces. He spotted these 5-foot tall fluted columns, reminiscent of grand, old
homes with wide, open porches. He loved the beaded detailing around the tops, but multiple lives had resulted in layers of
cracked and peeling paint, so they were in dire need of an update. With fresh coats of paint and easy upgrades, they became
beautiful floor lamps. Look for columns such as these at flea markets or salvage yards for around $100 and up.
