Matters of Style :: Before & After

Thursday, September 1, 2011

Blogger Matters of Style has really scored on their latest thrifting jaunt, turning up a lovely pair of vintage glass lamps (pictured above). But, these aren't just your average glass lamps....  a little research reveals that they are Murano glass lamps, a highly coveted Italian design. Don't let the dated gold bases distract you....  Matters of Style simply switched out the old bases, replacing them with chic lucite, giving the set a completely fresh & modern makeover. Check out the before & after photos below, and don't miss out an almost spot on match lamp that Etsy seller diantiques is offering -- purchase & apply the same technique for an wonderful period piece with modern style.
