It’s the 1st Anniversary of Transformation Thursday at The Shabby Chic Cottage. Gina has asked up to link up our favorite transformation. Really, mine is any thing to do with spray paint, so here’s the lamps that were transformed.
You know I have a love for spray paint. Well, there’s good reason for that. The transformation can be incredible. Isn’t it wonderful what a little color can do to an ordinary item? I found all these lamps at the D.I. and Savers. These were $2 each at Savers.
I then found these lamp shades at Ross for only $2.99 each. They have a silver rim around the top and bottom.
These lamps were going to be perfect for our bedroom, once they were painted black. I had thought I would cover the shades, but once I put them on the lamps I knew they were perfect just the way they were. This is Hubby’s table. See that glass ball on the candle stick? It was a birthday gift from our son, Chris.
Here’s a close-up. The game is to get the golf ball on top of the tee. It’s harder than it sounds.
Okay, back to the lamps. Here’s my table. Don’t they look great? I love them black. The total cost for both lamps is $10.
I bought this lamp at the D.I. for $2. It’s the same as the ones I painted black.
This time I painted it blue for the boys room. I already had the lamp shade in the basement and I’m not sure how much it cost when I bought it. I’m still thinking of what to do with the shade. I love this blue.
This last one was bought at the D.I. for $3. It’s kind of a weird yellow creamy color, but I love the detail on it.
It will be going in Emilee’s room (once I get the side table painted it’s going on). She loves this green and wants her desk painted the same color. This lamp shade was also in the basement and I’ll be doing something to it later. Isn’t it pretty?
I love the detail on the lamp. It’s going to look amazing in her room.
So what do you think? Doesn’t a new color make such a huge difference? Isn’t it amazing you can transform something plain and inexpensive into something you exactly want with just a little paint? Yep, I love spray paint.
