If it doesn't move then paint it! I have already talked about my obsession with painting. Well, I have been a bit stressed out lately with volunteering projects and upcoming birthday parties to plan and money issues (don't we all have money issues). Anyway, changing something or refreshing an existing item always helps my mood.
I have recently painted my living room. It went from brown to orange. Well, the brown lamps do not match anymore and I have been meaning to change that. What a better way to destress than to paint?!?
Here is the before lamp in action. It is not the best picture of the lamp, but really, who takes pictures with the lamp in mind. This is the new orange ombre paint job. I'm going to eventually have shades of grey in the room (the floor will get painted and I hope to reupholster the furniture), so the brown lamp had to go.
a little drizzle, and a mad dash to get the lamp in the house before all my hard work got ruined....
Cost of project...$3.44 for the gray spray paint. I had all the other supplies already.
List of supplies to refinish a lamp....
Mod Podge (this comes in all sorts of finishes, I used a high gloss one)
Time to refinish lamp....
Not counting drying time - 1 hour.
Counting drying time - 1.5 days
I will watch garage sales this spring and summer to find a nice white lamp shade that needs a new home.
And a gratuitous aren't my kids/weeping cherry tree, beautiful, picture!
