Sweet Lamp Simple Revamp


A while ago I found this desk lamp at a garage sale, in a very good condition and, for me I liked with extra love because I can see ( can you??)  vintage 50's flair. It is metal, it works,  but the brown colour it was too "colourless" to me.
Because it is going in the craft room, and I have accents in red among other colours, this  was my choice for the "revamp of the lamp"!
First things first, so I primed it with my reliable and easy to use spray paint primer.

Next: 2 coats of Rustoleum red spray paint

It sits in my craft room now, and it gives a so needed spot light for me and my work station, oh, so much for around....6 bucks ? ( 3 for the lamp plus paint)... nothing can beat this!
