Spray painted lamps

I am always browsing the thrift stores and Kijiji (Canadian version of Craigslist) for "treasures".  I've had my eye on a pair of lamps at Homesense for the past few weeks but just can't bring myself to pay $59.99 for a lamp. (Plus tax y'all, which here in Ontario is 13%!!!!).  Heck, no!  So I was pretty darn happy to find a pair of brass lamps on Kijiji for $15 for the set!  So happy in fact that I rushed them home and spray painted them with Krylon's Oil Rubbed Bronze before I could take the "before" picture!  Doh!

Sadly, no before and after pictures today....but here they are after a couple of coats of spray paint and the shades I had leftover from when I re-placed the shades of my bedroom lamps.  (I knew they would come in handy sooner or later!)






A little spray paint, some leftover shades, and I finally have lamps in the living room.
