Anyway, while I was having a breakdown this weekend - dog in hospital, house completely unorganized, laundry piling up and a guest room that needed some love - I decided to do something crafty to lift my spirits.
Remember I mentioned wanting to give my grandmother's old brass lamp a face lift?
As you can see, the brass is a bit outdated and it has started to rust on the base.
Since I am convinced that spray paint is the answer to any and every decor problem, I armed myself with Krylon Metallic Paint in Chrome, and got to work.
I am not exaggerating when I say that this took less than 5 minutes - including the additional effort of laying down a tarp and applying painters tape to the cord and light bulb holder. I am really happy with the final product.
Here is the lamp in the guest room on top of the completed buffet :) It's coming along.
What should I do next?
