So as I mentioned before--we are now in the process of redecorating our Master Bedroom.
I started with these lamps--and if you remember I had just covered the lamp shades (HERE) last year. But to be honest--I wasn't really ever too in love with them. So it didn't break my heart to rip off the fabric and start over.
You may remember how lamp #1 started its life before the wonders and magic of spray paint:
Then after spray paint and with the new fabric shade:
And here is lamp #1 after several thin layers of brown spray paint--and let me just say that I LOVE the shades this way!
However--I got sort of excited about painting and started on lamp #1 before I had taped off any of the inside of the lamp. So then the inside was splattered with over spray. So I had no choice but to spray the inside of the shade as well.
So now it looks like this:
No big deal--it just darkens the light coming through a little more and doesn't look QUITE as professional.
So I learned from my mistake and used a plastic shopping bag and painters tape to tape off the inside of Lamp #2
Even though it can be tedious and boring to do the proper prep work before a painting project--the results are worth it.
This one looks much better:
So here's a little before and after for ya (My favorite part of any makeover).
Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE spray paint?
