So this was NOT my favourite DIY. Not at all! If you asked someone who knew me they would tell you two things about me. 1. I am NOT patient and 2. I am a perfectionist. This was a challenging project.
First the lamp. I had purchased this lamp over a year ago for $5 and have wanted to do this project forever! So because it was in storage for a long time it needed a cleaning. I used a really good cleaner to get all the grim off. Well I must of missed some. I didn't prime (lesson #1 on this project) so the spray paint didn't adhere to the whole surface. Lots of spots.
The second irritating part was the shade. I was lucky. Bought it at home depot and it had a price tag of $17.99 but because it had a little mark on the shade the sales girl took $5 off. I was pretty happy about that! So I looked on pinterest for some tutorials on how to mask the chevron lines. Well I tried four times before I got them to be lined up and almost the same size. (this was a challenge for me as I like to have things equal).
Then I painted. It's not perfect. Grr.... Oh well. It's done! Overall I like it. Just wishing I used a different colour than the grey but do love the grey and aqua together.
Have a great day!! It is finally looking like spring here!
