Here’s a quick wee idea to spruce up a boring old lamp…
What you need:
A boring old lamp
Paint pot sample (brush included)
Time: 20 mins
I chose Water from the Colours range at B&Q.. only £1.10!!
Pop down some newsprint, paint away the boring silvery metal and VOILA!! A lamp in the perfect shade to brighten up your room.
It’s incredibly simple and takes no time at all. I grudge throwing out items that work and fear i’ll succumb to the crazy materialistic society we’ve created. By revamping a little bit here and there you can save a fortune. I also prefer the items I have now and I can invest more money when I need to buy something new… With the exception of this little silver lamp that cost approximately £10, ten years ago. 😀
Here’s the transformation… It’s difficult to take a pic of a long slender lamp with a 35mm lens!
