Our living room is a giant work in progress, but I just added a DIY lamp for our end table. We needed some extra lighting for the end table/cabinet that holds our tv components. I recently found a GIANT consignment store near our house, and I happened upon this little number just begging for some spray paint.
Not that I don’t love peachy-mauve… but it wasn’t going to work in my house without some TLC. I liked the shape and I knew some spray paint and a new shade would do the trick. The original shade was so dirty and ugly I left it at the store. I covered the important parts with tinfoil, primed it and gave it two light coats of Rustoleum Heirloom White. Always be sure that a used lamp is functional before purchasing at a thrift or consignment store.
