Recently I came across this freebie lamp, it was old, rusty and musty (hey, I rhyme) First thing first, washed it with soap, then added some life to the shade with burlap fabric (it was a freebie as well) the trim I had was ivory color, perfect match to the fabric. Then I took the lamp to the garage for light spray paint. At first I added primer (Valspar spray primer) after that dried which was fairly quick I added few coats of Krylon yellow spray paint. I decided to keep the lamp on changing table, as it nicely matches with yellow accents for the baby. Here are my results, Enjoy!
