This post is LONG overdue. Remember months ago when i found this lamp at the thrift store for $5? Well i gave it a little love with some spray paint and a new lamp shade from Ross for $8. So total i spent on the project was $13!
Here is the before.
The brass was so easy to paint i jsut scrubbed it down with a brillo pad but the white part. NOT.SO.EASY! I think i scraped the the grey paint off 3 or 4 times before i got it right. It kept bubbling and peeling... so Frustrating. It's still not perfect, but that's ok it's good enough :)
But i'm thinking the shade is too small?? Check out the
before and after one more time and look at the shades. Do you think the one i bought, in the after pic, is too small? The original shade looks good from far away aka in the picture but up close- not so perdy...
Please let me know your opinion! Too small or just right??
