Spray Paint Lamp Tutorial

Pin It
Happy Monday Everyone!! 
 
I had a busy weekend!  I went fabic shopping with my girl friends on Saturday and then I went to an apple festival and orchard on Sunday with the ladies in my family. It was so much fun and the weather was perfect!  We'll post pics of the apple festival and orchard later this week :)
 
My mom has been wanting some new lamps for her bedroom so instead of going out and spending a $100 on a new pair we decided to update some of her old lamps. 
 
Here are the lamps before:
 
 
We decided to spray paint the lamps a satin nickel.
 
 
Before spray painting tape off the light switch and the power cord with painters tape (unless you want those spray painted too).  Then you can start spray painting.  Remember light and even coats so the paint doesn't drip!

There you go!  Now you have new lamps for the bedroom that only cost $7 (the cost of the spray paint).  The lamp shades came from another set of lamps that were broken in a recent move so they were FREE!
 
 
I love cheap and easy projects like this!!

I've been thinking about doing that to some of our lamps as well! We have a really fat ugly black one I'm thinking I may paint with chalkboard paint!
