Brass lamp makeover
I needed a cute lamp for my entryway table. I found this super shiny brass one at the thrift store for $4. It had a hideous plastic shade too so I donated the shade back to the store before leaving.
I primed it with a coat of primer and then followed it up with 3 light coats of my new favorite paint. The Rustoleum universal. LOVE this stuff, I just wish they had it in more colors.
I already had the lamp shade but thought it was a little blah.
So I made a few fabric flowers to make the shade pretty and add some texture.
Love the flowers! I wrote a little tutorial on how to make them and it can be found right here. They are way easy!
Love my new lamp, especially love that it cost me less than $10!
