A few years ago, I bought this lamp at a yard sale for $3. The color suited a girl's room. It had been spray-painted, hiding the gold paint beneath. I'd had it for sale in my booths for awhile, then brought it home.
Last week, I decided to use it, giving it a new look with gold spray paint, the kind that looks "textured", however there is no texture to the paint. I love the outcome! I plopped on a shade that I had in my stash. (Who else besides a junker/dealer would have a stash of lamp shades, or spare lamps, for that matter?)
