It seems I have a “thing” for lamps, and pillows, and chairs… Oh, who am I kidding I am a fool for decor! I don’t see it as a bad thing, but ask my husband and he would probably say different, ha! Anywho, I’ve had a set of lamps just sitting not being used for months. I decided to give one of them a makeover and add it to our basement! We were in need of a lamp of some sort down there anyways! It’s amazing what a little spray paint can do, and a new lamp shade!
Before I started, I put some aluminium foil over the socket of the lamp so it wouldn’t get paint on it. I spray painted using Valspar La Fonda Mirage, flat spray paint. I gave it a nice two even coats. Before the piece was completely dry, I rubbed some of the porous places already in the lamp and it opened them up a tad, giving definition to the lamp! I picked up a charcoal gray lampshade from Hobby Lobby earlier in the week for only $12! It kind of gave me a boost on this project and fit it perfectly! I absolutely adore decorating with neutrals, but the fun of our basement is I went a little outside the box. We opted for a dark gray on the walls and since it doubles as the kids playroom, it’s oozing with color! Stay tuned for the full reveal coming soon!!
