|(the original shade makeover is here)|
It's undergone a base swap since this picture - a bronze-y "iron" stick base with a really ugly fake-marble ball in the center. The original base is still in my bedroom, with a new shade on it.
This shade, and it's new stick base, have been living on my computer desk in the living room, and I loved it there, but I hated the base the way it was, and I was ready for the shade to have some color.
So I spray-painted both: the base with black and hammered silver metallic spray paint, and the shade with a very watered-down acrylic paint, mixed with a little bit of fabric medium, in a plain old spray bottle.
Well, easy except for the part where while spray-painting in the garage with the door open for ventilation, I accidentally let two of my very indoor cats outside. I got them both back, and one of them was easy - he came when I called. The other I had to stalk, decieve, and finally pounce on like a rabid animal to get ahold of him, and he's REALLY pissed at me. Price you pay, little dude.
|That's him. And hey, look, it's the lamp! LOL|
