If there are two things I like to save, it’s time and money!
Are you in a crunch and can’t find that perfect lamp to finish off a space? Or do you have a lamp that needs some TLC?
I was in this particular dilemma a few weeks ago when I got a whole room ready to go and was missing a single floor lamp. I couldn’t find anything to match my style. I had a quick chat with my parents which ended in me taking home their old-school gold floor lamp. For reference older floor lamps can easily be found at secondhand stores for $10 and under.
Looking for an amazing fool-proof spray paint for lamps? I used Krylon Interior/Exterior in a medium brown and only required one good coat. I waited 15 minutes for it to dry then I used Tremclad Hammered Indoor/Outdoor spray paint (in brown hammer) on top a little more sparingly. I allowed for a little bit of the gold lamp to show through.
*Make sure to put some cardboard under the base of the lamp and use the sprays outdoors or where there is good ventilation.
I was astonished at how easy the makeover was and how great the lamp looked. I unfortunately do not have the before photo just wanted to share my latest spray finds for lamps. I got these sprays for free from a lady but I am sure they can be found at your local Canadian Tire or Home Hardware.
Way better than spending $50-$75 on a new lamp without the shade.
Have fun and spray on!
