Red Lamp Makeover

Posted on

I ran across these beauties at an auction a few month ago…

Unsure of whether or not they were in working condition, I took the risk & bought them {they were cheap:)}.  I was thrilled when I plugged them in & they worked!

I decided they were perfect candidates for the spray paint treatment.  And not just any spray paint, RED spray paint!  I wanted them to be a little funky & really add a pop of color to whatever room they ended up in.  So, after a little tape work…

It was time to bring on the red!  I used Valspar spray paint on these & it went on beautifully.

After the proper drying time, I topped these with basic white shades {found for a steal at a garage sale!}.  With every intention of selling these, they’ve taken up residence in my kitchen, hmmm….

So there you have it, don’t be afraid of those ugly unloved brass lamps.  A little spray paint therapy is all they need:).
