Lamp Love

I bought this old lamp yesterday.

This picture does not do its ugliness justice. First I painted it gold, but I didn't like it. Little bit of white ... no. Then I remembered my paint from yesterday's post, oil rubbed bronze. Add a new lampshade from my closet.

Throw a tassel on there. All better.

Now off to my next project ... Star Wars triage.

I am so intrigued by this oil rubbed bronze spray paint you speak of. I have been looking at things in my house wondering what I could use it on. Most of our things already have the oil rubbed bronze finish, but I am determined to find something to try it out! Love the lamp redux!

Good Morning Mrs. Jones and thanks for folling me over at The Lisa Porter Collection. I wanted to comment on this post BECAUSE i am an oil rubbed bronze queen. When we bought our home 7 years ago, EVERYTHING was brite brass and in poor condition. I could not afford to replace everything all at once so i started experimenting.
Mixed up my own "secret sauce" & with a little steel wool, mastered the art of absolute antiqued oil rubben bronze. Let me know if you ever want the recipe, i'm happy to share.
Thanks again for stopping by and have a nice Sunday.
Lisa
