Lamp Make-over

I bought this lamp at a local thrift store.  It cost $3.00.

I love the lamp, it is perfect for any room.

September 1, 2010 018  Only one problem I could see; it looks boring.

I had to paint it.  I decided red would be the ticket.

Since I couldn’t find a “red” spray paint I liked; I figured I would buy a regular can of red paint and faux finish it with a black.  The can of paint I bought was called “cherry red”.

I taped the lamp parts I didn’t want paint on (including the cord).

Call me crazy, but I like it.  I decided not to push my luck

so no faux finish.  I’m keeping the red.

I added a beautiful shade and set it on the counter in my kitchen (red is the theme, remember my chalkboard?)

Later this week, I am hoping to decorate the shade, take some decent photos and show you the finished product.

I really, really am excited about the red!  I hope I can find the perfect trim for the shade!
