How about a lamp diy to start the year off right? And yes, I think I'll be making a reference to "the new year" for a few weeks, hope you don't mind:)
Here's another look at the lamp in all of it's green and black glory...
This diy project took me a few months only because when I brought them home, I stuck them in our junk room until I had time to work on them.
Of course, after two months, I found the time. I used Krylon Fusion spray paint because that's what google told me to use. Some diy websites said to sand and prime but I'm not a perfectionist, so you know.
I don't have any photos of me spray painting the lamps because I was home alone and couldn't figure out how to paint and photograph at the same time. So use your imagination here.
They turned out MUCH better than I expected. Who knew that spray painting lamps was so easy?!
They even have some brass goodness on top.
