lamp revamp.

a few weeks ago un macho brought home this little yard sale treasure.
although we have to appreciate the hand painted flowers, they aren't exactly our style.
it's a little banged up, but we love loveee good, fun lighting - so we gave it a shot.

what you need:
sand paper
masking tape

what we did:
 washed the funk off the lamp. ha 
 sanded the hand painted flowers down since they were raised a little.
we taped off the lighting fixture and outer rim.
then we primed the whole lamp.
next we sprayed the outside purple.
then we hand painted the inside gold.

easy project and a totally new look!
we love the light. now just where to hang it?!

  1. Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
