Lamp Refurbish

my son moved out and i have an extra bedroom that i am working on to make a craft/storage/guest room...i will be posting more on that later, but this is one of my 1st projects that i'm doing for the room....


i've had this lamp for i don't know how long....i bought it at a yard sale and it's been sitting around waiting on me to do something with it...i finally got an idea after searching on pinterest...


i know everybody has an opinion, but i actually like the way it looks...just not for my "new" room...




a little bit of primer to get started...i used krylon white paint...its made for any surface....



i picked this color in krylon...i wanted something with a little more gold...the more i look at it the more i like it!!

here is the shade that i will be using...i've tried spray painting one before but no luck with that...i see others doing it with success...not me!

i used kilz with a brush on my shade...it was time consuming and i like spray paint a lot better....after i did a coat of primer, i then applied just plain old gloss white paint...it took about 4 coats...

after i finished painting the shade, i added some burlap flowers onto it...i'm happy with my color choice...i can't wait to add some turquoise accessories in my "new room"...



Peace, Love, & Joy

It turned out really good! I like the shade of yellow/gold. I have a lamp I'd like to try that on. Thanks for the idea!

Hi Ashley! I love how your shade turned out and the burlap flowers are a great touch! I have been trying to get the guts to spray paint some shades in my dining room. I think some kilz may be in order! Thank you so much for linking your lamp up to Savvy HomeMade Monday!
