Lamp...Repainted

OMG...I'm jumping up and down with excitement!  I found this plaster lamp at a thrift store yesterday for $10.00 with the lampshade and all!  It was pretty boring but I jazzed it up a bit today.


  1. Painted it with primer
  2. Painted it with a turquoise satin paint.
  3. Painted it with a dark stain and then rubbed it off with a cloth.
That is it...My new turquoise lamp!

  2. Love the new look. What a difference! Thanks for visiting! I'm having a hard time reading the word verifications with these old eyes. May I suggest you turn this off. I think you will get more comments.

    I have a vase and pitcher on my mantle in this same color and have been on the lookout for a lamp similar to this. Thanks for the inspiration!

  19. This is so amazing! I would have definitely walked right past the white lamp, but the turquoise would stop me in my tracks! So cool that you had the vision and knew you could turn this lamp into something gorgeous. Great job!

    Visiting from Farmhouse Style Blog Hop :) Congrats on the feature, by the way!
