One day about a month ago i stumbled upon this blog post...
ever since that day I have wanted to fill some of the empty space on my end tables with a old lamp that look brand new.
A lamp that when I looked at it, it would instantly make me smile. A lamp that instantly make me smile can not be found at ikea, or at target. However, those store do tend to try hard with there low prices and sometime creative colors.
Anyway, I was in Spokane and on a random little trip to find a boutique fabric store, which was of course closed, Trish and I ran in to a little funky store where i found this lamp...
Next I shook up the spray paint! and......
Sprayed about 2 coats quickly! Totally loving the color!
After it dried I put the lamp shade on and put the lamp in its new home!
The purple looks a lot darker dried, but still more purple than these pictures make it appeared.
I debated adding a little silver trim to the lamp shade but I am glad I didn't. I like the simplicity of it. It keeps your eye on the shape of the lamp.
The glossy paint came out perfect!
And now my lamp lives happily in its new home!
