I Love Lamp!

Brick loves lamp....
and I love lamp! 
Vavoom!!!! 
Hello upgrade! 
Remember this sad little lamp Eric and I found at Valley Thrift about a month ago? 
I went over more of the paint process in THIS POST, but some spray paint, a bit of gold-leaf, and a new lampshade was all this little guy needed to transform from floral and grey, to gold and glam! 
This was my first attempt at gold-leaf, and although the whole process was a bit messy (imagine gold magic dust spread all over my table), it was pretty easy to get the hang of. 
Now this baby sits happily in our living room, and makes me just grin every time I turn it on. 

Nothing is more self-satisfying than creating something yourself. Especially a piece for your own home, it's your space so make it express yourself! 
Give it a try and tell me all about it!
