Today I have another thrift store makeover for you guys. Again, an easy one! I love knocking these “quickies” off my project list. Here are the $4 brass lamps I started with. Very old and dingy. I always start by using a damp rag, along with warm water and vinegar to clean each piece. If I wasn’t using spray paint, and I wanted to keep the lamps brass, I would have just shined them up with Barkeeper’s Friend. In this case, I definitely wanted to spray paint.
Next, I gave the lamps a coat of primer. I mainly use Rust-Oleum for all of my projects. I’ve had the best results from this brand. The white primer alone made a world of a difference!!
Time for the paint! I chose this pretty, sea-foam color by Rust-Oleum called Robin’s Egg. It doesn’t translate too well in this pic, but keep scrolling. You’ll see just how beautiful this color is!
