If you think back to February, you might recall that I posted about struggling to find a lamp that I liked for the end of the couch in the basement. Well, things move like lightning over here–lightning I tell you–because just 9 months later I’m ready to show you my solution.
Ummm… not quite.
A thrifted lamp was my starting point. It was the right height. I liked the shape. The base wouldn’t take up a whole lot of space on our tiny end table.
I took care of the brass with the same shiny silver spray paint that I used on the original dining room chandelier.
As much as I liked the turquoise colour, I was not a fan of the flowers. So everything got a coat of deep purple spray paint.
I like having pops of colour in the basement, and purple is a colour I’ve not used yet.
Turns out the purple works. I really like how it looks in the basement.
But I have a dilemma.
What lampshade looks best? (Ignore the shiny cellophane wrapping.)
I have a (slightly crooked) grey option.
Or a white option.
What’s your vote?
