Lamp makeover


I am going to show you something I did several weeks ago... I did not feel like sharing it until now though, hehe.

Remember how my entrance sideboard used to look? Well, I had been planning on buying a new table lamp/a new pair of lamps for that place. Nevertheless, I cannot (still) afford their price... Just yet. Lamps are something I like to "splurge" at, I love them and I think they can actually do a lot in a room.

So, I decided to give a new opportunity to the one I have at the moment via a new coat of paint.

This is how the lamp used to look before the makeover.

I remember I loved it when we purchased it. I really liked its classic and traditional look. It has turned a little bit old-fashioned since then, in my opinion. So, what about a new color for the lamp base and a new shade?

This is the golden bottom of the lamp base. The previous "gold color" looked more like copper-colored, and I was tired of it.

The top of the lamp base is also gold, and I chose a black satin-glossy finish paint for the main body. For the shade, I thought of a black cotton exterior and a gold satin/silky interior, which creates a warm atmosphere and light and a contemporary look.

And finally, this is the result! What do you think, do you like it? I hope so! I can really feel the change in the room. It is not a new lamp but it actually works there... At least for now, hehe.

Thanks for visiting!
