So, I decided that I could spray paint, too! Last weekend, we started cleaning out the office - a.k.a. the ultimate junk room. Being a certifiable packrat, this could be a painful process. Ha!
While we were decluttering, I found this beauty. Oh, and there's another one to make a pair. :)
I bought these little lamps right after we were married and had plans to spray paint the bases, but never did. Living up to my pack ratness, I hated to get rid of these. Here they were - waiting these past 8 years for a little makeover!
Here's a closeup of the not so pretty finish on these lamps
And, here's my special helper
First, I sprayed a light coat on as a primer
Then, a second heavier coat
And, the final product!
And, they found a new home atop this dresser. The dresser top is still a work in progess, but I think the lamps are here to stay.
Here is one of my next victims
I also have my eye on a picture frame (J. - the one you gave me that's in the dining room now), a floor lamp, the mailbox, and my outside table and chairs. I'm hooked!
