From Tacky to "I LOVE IT!"

The wonders of spray paint!! Any home decorator will tell you SPRAY PAINT is a miracle worker in our world. It covers, hides, updates and transforms all in a matter of minutes! Check out this brass lamp I picked up on CraigsList for $25 for the PAIR. It's SOLID brass, but NOT my style and probably NOT YOURS either, right?


Blasted the lamps with a can of hammered texture spray paint (aprox: 15 min. each) allow to dry between coats... and voila! NEW LAMPS!
available at any major home improvement store

The result was: AMAZING transformation!!! I couldn't WAIT to share them with my client! I KNEW she would love them too! 


The one thing I get asked all the time... that looks great, but how do I know what to look for? Look for quality items. The heavier the lamp the better the quality. Just about anything can be transformed with a quick wash in soapy water and mist of fresh spray paint. Even vases and outdoor furniture can benefit from a fresh coat of paint!
