I like this lamp. Reminds me of some really expensive ones. Except it’s only $30. So I snatched it up.
But I’m on a goldy-bronze kick lately, and it’s the metal finish of choice for my study-o. So thanks to a little paint, my metallic dreams came true:
I originally tried rub-n-buff (starting at the bottom of the lamp) after seeing several tutorials, but I didn’t find it the easiest to use, and I wasn’t crazy about the finish, so I switched to gold leaf paint. I kind of like the way the paint and brush I used left small streaks that look more like a brushed finish. Ba-dum-bum.
I love makeovers that can be done studying while watching TV, don’t you?
