We all know that I thoroughly enjoy transforming old thrift store lamps and making them new again. I know I said before that I promise I will not hoard lamps, but I'm not quite to that point (yet). At some point I will add them to my stash that I am accumulating to sell at an antique market or craft fair. Until then, I will keep filling my home with pretty lamps!
Here's one that I picked up for $8.00 at a thrift store:
All it needed was a coat of chrome spray paint and a new shade (from Target!). Just to recap since I have posted tutorials before, painting an old lamp is very easy. You just tape off the parts that you don't want painted (socket, cord, etc.). I usually stuff the cord in a plastic grocery bag and then seal it with tape. Make sure you give the lamp a good cleaning with a wet rag and get all of the dust and grime off of it. Then, spray it with some primer. When your primer is dry, spray it with the color of your choice. I used Krylon chrome finish.
And here it is now:
