New Look for a Lamp

Hi!  Thanks for stopping by on this Tuesday....  I have an easy lamp update to share with you.  I found this lamp base at a local garage sale.  It didn't have a lampshade but I found one on clearance at Target.  I think the lampshade is fun and fits the lamp perfectly.  Aaaah...this picture makes me miss summer...seeing my flowers blooming.  Although, here in Michigan we can hardly complain as the weather has been so tame for this time of year.


I thought the lamp just needed a bit more color, so I pulled out my trusty aqua spray paint.  I gave it a few coats and then rubbed stain on it to give it a bit more depth.


Do you like it before or after better?
Have a great evening!!!
