spray paint

Isn't this lamp beautiful?

Just kidding!  :)
I bought it at Goodwill this week for $5.99. 
I'm sure you are wondering what possessed me to buy this lamp.
It's not exactly the most beautiful lamp you ever did see.

After I found this at Goodwill, I went to Home Depot and bought some spray paint.
Apple Green spray paint!
So pretty.
I came home, removed the lamp shade, sanded the wood and the brass on the lamp, and wiped it down with a wet towell.  Covered the top of the lamp and the cord with plastic and painters tape.

Then the fun started.  I took it out in the yard and broke out that can of purty green spray paint.

This is what I ended up with!

Isn't that a lot better than the dark wood and gold brass. 
Such a fun color.  I love color!
I also have plans for the lamp shade.  I'll share that with you when I get time to do it.

When I was at Home Depot, I also picked up some Red Apple spray paint. 
Apparently I like the colors of apples!

Did I mention that I like color?

I LOVE color!

I've had these stools forever.  I thought they might be fun to paint as well.
Red was my choice of color for these.

They went from this...

To this!

How pretty is that? I love them!

Now I need to head to the fabric store and find some fun fabric to cover the seat of the stools with.
I'll let you know what I come up with for the seats!
I'm sure it will be colorful!  :)

So what projects have you been working on around the house?  I have a million different projects started.  I just have to work on which ever one fits into my day the best.  Somedays it's indoor projects, somedays it's outside.  Somedays my kids will let me work on projects, somedays we snuggle and read books!  I just try to go with the flow.

  1. Oh Billie, you are right up my alley! I've been thinking about some projects with spray paint around my own house ;o) I'd love to see your finished lamp with the shade when it's all done!
