Knob Turned Finial

Once I was done transforming my lamp I realized it needed a funky finial to match it's new personality. I found this beautiful glass knob at Anthropologie a few weeks ago and I thought it was the perfect crowning touch.
All I had to do was remove the screw and epoxy the pieces onto the original plain finial that came with the lamp. I added a small glass bead on top where the screw head would normally be, and since it's made of glass it glows when the light is turned on.

  7. I loved the lamp post (Ha ha) and I love your finial. I recently ordered knobs for an old cabinet from Anthropologie and I love them. You can catch a lot of sales there online.

  11. What a prefect idea! I'm trying this. I have so many lamps, all with ugly finials. Our Hobby Lobby sells these pretty knobs too. Usually $2.99 - $7.99. I love buying them.
