I wasn't sure I would really like them brown. I lived with them brown for a while ... and I was right ...I just wasn't loving them brown. I remembered a great lamp redo, done by Flea Market Trixie . She did a faux zinc on lamps that were very similar to mine and they turned out wonderful. So I thought I would give it a try.
I sprayed them with a self etching primer in a dk grey. After they were dry, I added a little water in some white craft paint ... brushed on the watered down paint in one direction working around the lamp. I did about a two inch strip around at a time. Then I quickly wiped of the white paint with a paper towel. I repeated that all the way up the lamps until I was done.
They were really easy to do and I love the way they turned out.
I love lamp redos ... there are so many techniques and colors ... the sky s the limit.
The best part ... if I get board of these in a few years ... I can just repaint them :)
But for now I think they fit right in.
Now if only every project could be that quick and easy :)
