I guess things have been pretty busy around here because today I am posting about a makeover that is almost a year old!! Errr I know! It’s terrible. But hey, better late than never, right??
So last Christmas… Yupp, I said this makeover was old, right? Anyways, so last Christmas I found these amazing lamps at Marshalls. There were TWO matching lamps, so of course I had to get both. Maybe it’s just me, but if there are two matching lamps I just feel compelled to get both. Even if I don’t need two. I can’t leave one behind! It would miss it’s friend! I have a problem, I know.
I wasn’t sure where I was going to use them, but they had a great shape and they matched my style perfectly. AKA – I could use them just about anywhere. I had been looking for coral lamps for a long time, but the only ones that looked high quality ranged from $80-$120 EACH. So yeah, wasn’t going to happen. Thankfully I got lucky
have a Marshalls addiction and found mine for $30 each!
You might notice the very odd finish that they had; it almost looked dirty in a way. But that didn’t matter to me – I knew from the second I saw them that I would spray them a bright white. As soon as I brought them home, I taped off the cords and hardware and began the makeover. I used a matte white spray paint and sprayed about 2-3 coats of paint on each lamp.
Above is the picture I took at Marshalls when I bought them last year, and below are the updated photos from my recent bedroom makeover. What do you think of the new color? Which do you prefer?
