Anywho, now that I intend on posting my projects I will be better about my photographs. But I'm sure you can picture this one for yourself. I picked up a brass lamp from Goodwill for $1.99 probably a month or so ago. It sat in the living room for a while. I was busy working on the desk project. But the day I spray painted the drawer pulls I was in a crazy spray painting mood and pulled the lamp outside, too. It got a coat of primer and a few coats of Valspar Golden Maize spray paint in Satin. Perfection! (to spray the lamp base protect the bulb unit and the cord by wrapping with a plastic bag and taping it in place). I then found this gorgeous lamp shade at IKEA. Doesn't it make you happy?
A little more work needs done on it. I need to cut a piece of felt to glue to the bottom to protect the surface I rest it on. And then it needs to find a home (other than on the dining room table). I'm thinking it'll end up in Cupcake's big girl room one day.
I'm very happy with the finish I got from the Valspar spray paint and I really like the way the "cap" just twists into place, but I did find the nozzle quite difficult to press down. I have another project that I hope to get to soon that I will be using a different can of paint and I'll let you know if it was a fluke.
