Last Summer, while we were visiting my in-laws in Ohio, I found an old lamp in the garage, that had not sold at their previous yard sale. It actually belonged to my husband's aunt...I think? Anyway, I've been seeing all of you bloggers out there, painting old ceramic lamps and using "barrel" shades... I really can't believe those are back in style...and I also can't believe that I love them! So, I just knew the potential that this lamp had! I never took a picture of what the lamp looked like before, so I found a lamp at orleansgifthouse.com, that reminded me of it...kind of.
I used almost a whole can of Krylon spray paint, in eggshell. It took several coats. I also found a grass shade from Lowes. Not a "barrel" shade, but I knew that I would like it. The end result was fantastic. It's now my new favorite lamp in the house! Here is the after:
Thanks for the new lamp Aunt Pam! See you this Summer!
