Anyway, I just want to show you how SIMPLE it is to turn an ugly lamp into a beauty. Tip number 1: NEVER judge a lamp by it’s color, just it’s shape. Here are two beauties I picked up.
FOR 4.00 EACH.
I also picked up these shades (they were pretty smudgy) for $2.00
YEP THAT IS $1.00 a piece!
All I did was take a metal primer and a fun textured paint , here is the simple process.
I even loved the lamps white! (that was the metal primer)
The lamp shades I spray painted a gold color. It worked better than I could have hoped for. It covered all the dirty smudges and went from a fairly stark linen white to a nice taupe. (Love it when things go my way!)
Isn’t this finish pretty? I spray painted them my moonlight copper and once they dried I lightly dry brushed a gold paint over the lamp.
Here it is in my first house :-)
And here they are in my NEW HOME! I made that textured art above my bed from a thrift store piece too!
Now who wants to run out to the thrift store and get them some lamps!
