I'm just glad to have it GO UP.
Today’s party is the last in the Spring Fling linkies we’ve been hosting over the past couple of weeks:
I’m on a mission to have every one of you try spray painting, and hopefully this will convince you.
I’ve been wanting a much taller lamp on our foyer table for ages now. I found one at Goodwill a few weeks ago, brought it home but the light it didn’t work. ARGH.
Found this one the other day, and it’s almost identical:
I love these older brass lamps because their lines are just beautiful – I think it’s hard to find them like this anymore.
I took it outside to the garage (on an old sheet) and gave it a quick prime:
Then I gave it a quick coat of brushed nickel spray paint:
For all that is good, go get some spray paint!! ;)
I grabbed a lamp shade that’s been in the family room for about a year now:
Actually, I’d rather the shade be a bit taller, but I’m not complaining, since I was using what I had!
It looks SO much better than the shorty glass lamp I had there before:
DO use short, quick sprays.
DO shake the can really well, and here and there throughout your project
DO spray paint in the garage (with the door open) or outside
DO use eye protection and a mask if you are concerned about fumes!
I hope that helps if you are just trying out!
Now, let’s see your spray paint projects! I would appreciate a link back to this post, and if you want you can add this pretty button:
