My friend knows I have this blog and that I love to makeover things and that I am a spray paint queen so she stockpiles projects for me for when I come visiting.
She was given these nicely shaped but badly colored lamps. These things are heavy! If she ever needs an impromptu weapon...
Brass is only going to look good if you are doing a steampunk look so I took a can of black spray paint and changed them to fit into her existing decor.
Gee which one looks better? And do you see those shadows? We had sunshine! Weeee!
Be sure you cover the area where the light bulb fits into - you do NOT want paint in there.
She'd like new shades for them but until then they are looking much better! This one will sit on the side table her mom redid by making a new insert covering out of lacquered fabric! The table looks amazing!
Brand new lamps for $2.97? Not bad at all.
