Before and After Lamp

I'm joining Susan's Met Monday at Between Naps on the Porch. Join the party for more great mets!

Here's the before of my cherub lamp I found recently at the flea market for under $16. The lampshade was dirty, but in great shape, and the cherub was gold, which I changed.




I spray painted the lamp white and scrubbed the shade with a toothbrush and a tiny bit of soap.



Here's how it turned out. My first spray paint job. And here it is on my table.
Thanks for visiting me!

D, this little lamp was truly transformed by your paint job! It looks wonderful!

I love the shot of your DGD, Peyton, too, in the earlier post. She looks to be about the same age as my Sweet Caroline. :-) Isn't being a grandmother just the best job in the whole world?

fondly,
Rett
