Goodwill Lamp Makeover

I found the following lamp at Goodwill the other week.
It was perfect.


The beauty is that I didn’t even have to run out to buy spray paint because I already had the color!
At first, I wanted to paint it turquoise, but after thinking it through, I knew it wouldn’t go with anything in the house.
So I stayed neutral and decided on Heirloom White by Rust O Leum, which I already had in the garage.


Look at the cool snowflake pattern I created on my lamp!!
No, this is not a pattern.
This is a mistake.
No worries.
I waited for it to dry and then took some sandpaper and sanded it a bit to get this off and then I spray painted over it.

And here is the after:

I have never nailed down the trick of not painting the cord.

I have even taped the cord with painter’s tape and still get paint on the cord.

It’s a wonder how I even have a home improvement blog, isn’t it?

It’s an even bigger wonder that you all keep coming back.

I cannot stop taking pictures of this thing.

I literally walk into this room every hour just to look at the lamp.

I love it so much more now and to think I only spent $3.99 on this baby.
