Welcome Paint Lovers!
A few weeks ago I shared with all my facebook friends about the score I found at a garage sale. I got 2 of these rattan lamps for only $5!!! Score!
They appeared to have been spray painted black.
I wanted them to be a dark, espresso brown to fit in perfectly with my ongoing family room makeover.
I so grabbed some of my acrylic paint in espresso brown and just brushed it on the rattan portion of the lamp.
I gave them 1 coat to get the coverage I wanted. The areas that were really chipped I went over with a second coat. I wanted a little of the black to come through to keep it a dark espresso brown.
And I scored this cool rectangular shade at the same garage sale for $1! It was brand new, still in it’s plastic wrap.
So what have you been painting???
