Living room Lamp redo...

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!
