So just before I painted that lamp red, I painted this one black.
We have a granary/guest house that really needs a table lamp.
The thing is, the original ceiling is open and tall so we needed something bulky and large. The granary has the original beams and lot's of pine. and the bare lamp just blended in and faded away. After looking and looking at flea markets and second hand stores and striking out, we finally found this at Pottery Barn. Hmmm, the scale is perfect. The bare wood? Not so perfect. The plain wood lamp just blended in and faded away.
Black latex paint and a fairly dry brush.
Now it's perfect.
Stay tuned for a two lamp shade makeover tutorials coming soon to this blog.
I knit, garden, bake, and sew. I create something every day, even if it's just a mess in my kitchen.
“I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.” ― Marjorie Pay Hinckley
