I have a tendency to stash future furniture projects. Sometimes I wait for inspiration to strike and then other times I know exactly what I’m going to do with something the minute I get it home.
This swing arm lamp has officially sat in our bedroom, unfinished I might add, for over a year. Yep.
When I told you that our master bedroom was home to about 6 unfinished projects, I really wasn’t kidding… Please tell me I’m not the only one with a room like that!
It was time to scratch one of those items off the list…
When I found the swing arm lamp, I knew that it could be a total beauty.
I was right.
But, here’s the thing… it started out as combination of brass and silver…
Then I sprayed it white….
And it sat like that (in our bedroom) for a solid year. True Story.
I’m thinking that for some odd reason the white paint stopped the makeover process.
A year later and after a few coats of oil rubbed bronze spray paint, I have an entirely different lamp. Plus, to give it a true & total makeover, I splurged on a new lamp shade from Target.
I love it!
Now for the big question… Why did I wait so long to finish it?
It took about 10 minutes to transform…
And the really funny thing is, that it could have looked this good for a year now!
*HAVE A VERY HAPPY & SAFE 4TH OF JULY!!*
