Do you know how much a good looking lamp shade costs?
Me too! But while thrifting recently - I found this lovely lamp shade -
complete with tassels - for $8. Sold!
But when I picked it up - a cashier was quick to
inform me that the lamp went with it - all for $8! Oh my!
The lamp weighs a ton - very solid and full of quality -
but not quite my style in its brass finish.
But for $8 - I figured I could do something with it.
So after a little tape job...
...and some spray paint - my lamp has a new look.
I used Rustoleum's Metallic Flat Chestnut trigger spray paint
with no prep to the finish - I just sprayed it on.
I'm so happy with it.
The little grouping next to the lamp includes some inventory waiting to sell.
The sweet teeny basket is available here.
I think I'm in love with spray paint.
