$5 Find

I came across this little light a few weeks ago when I hit up the thrift store.
I could tell just by looking at it that it was from Ikea.  And although the prices at Ikea are reasonable to begin with, I couldn't help but feel like $5 for this light was a steal.

It is a very substantial light...measuring about 21 inches in diameter at the base and about 18 inches tall.

While I don't mind the industrial/stainlessl look, I think this light might go a little more glam instead.  I can't wait to get started on the transformation.  Fingers crossed it looks as good in person as it does in my head.  Project flops are the worst.

Just out of curiosity, how often do your projects end up turning out as good as you envisioned in your head?
