Quick floor lamp update and a fail


Hello friends. How are you today? The kiddies are on March break so we’ve been enjoying some down time.  As I mentioned before, this room is going through some big changes, but I took these photos a couple of weeks ago.
I purchased this lamp last year and I really like it but I wanted to give it a quick update.

Before anything else, forgive the tilted shade. It’s driving me insane. But I digress, updating the lamp took about 15 minutes (including drying time in between coats) and I love how it looks.

quicklampupdatecraftberrybush.com-5 I used the new DecoArt MATTE METALLICS paint. It’s a flat metallic paint and it comes in various colors.





Now let me show my original project…

    I like the plan of the tripod lamp, and it absolutely functions admirably in there. I like the tripod lamp better as well. Alternate has an office, institutional look to it. You’re correct it is too little in contrast with your other furniture.

    I bought two basic floor lamps from the store because they were inexpensive and had the black base that I was looking for this is essentially the same lamp. The shade is a flimsy plastic piece removable and clear. I would really like to decorate or do something to these lamps to incorporate the pink into them.
