Living room Lamp redo...

Tuesday / 7 comments
Do you have one room in your house that just BUGS you?  I do.  It's the living/family room.  It is just such an awkward space that I've had a hard time figuring out what to do with it.  There is no solid wall in the whole room.  There is the cut out/window thing into the dining room.


Then looking the other way is bathroom, coat closet, stairs and front door.


Then two windows and a electric baseboard heater that means you can't put any furniture by the window.


I've ignored this room for months and just sigh when I walk thru it (a hundred times a day).  But now I'm doing something about it and I'm starting with the green lamp.


This is the before after I already took it apart.


I sprayed on 2 coats of BIN primer.


Followed by three light coats of Rust-oleum Night tide in gloss.  Love!  I may recover the shade in white so that it will pop against the wall.  It just kind of blends in.


Now for the rest of the room!



  1. The lamp looks FABULOUS Brook! I love it! Can't wait to see what you do with the rest of the room! :)

  2. It is amazing how a little paint can transform a lamp. We did a similar blog entry on the transformation of some of Jordan's (my blog partner and daughter) lamps a while back.
