Revamp My Lamp {10 Spray Painted Lamp Ideas}


Happy Monday!  Are ya’ll ready for fall?  This weather is perfect for spray paintin’!

I picked up this little guy at a thrift store for $5.00. 


And I spray painted it with 3 thin coats of Krylon Fusion in Bright White Gloss.

I added a lampshade I found at the same Thrift Store.



The lamp shade was still tagged from it’s original retail home for $59.00.  But I snagged it for $4.00!  So in total, including the spray paint, my lamp cost me around $13.00. 


And while we are at it, let’s peek at 9 more spray painted lamp inspirations!

And a quick shout out to my banking BFF, Cliff, for the title of this post, Revamp My Lamp.  Back in my office days he revamped his own lamp and brought it up to the office to show me.  He told me he was going to start his own blog called Revamp My Lamp.  And then we proceeded to laugh until we cried.  Oh, sometimes I miss office banter!


What can you revamp with a can of spray paint?

    I took one of those big brassy bulbous lamps and sprayed it a bright turquoise. I also painted the finial on top of the harp the same color. But I left the shade off and used an Edison bulb from Home Depot instead. It isn’t what I would use to read a book by, but as far as a fun and funky accent piece, it looks really cool! Thanks for the roundup!
