Today I decided to update an old lamp my parents gave me in the '80's when I purchased my very first bedroom set. Back then brass lamps were the rage and so my parents gifted me this lamp for my new bedroom nightstand.
Well as the years flew by and trends changed, my little lamp ended up being a pretty permanent fixture in the attic. Then the other day I was going through the attic to pull out my Halloween decorations and I stumbled upon this long forgotten lamp.
Now I knew I was going to need another lamp for my living room sofa table, so I brought it down and placed it next to the pretty mercury glass and jute lamp already in the living room...and it was a perfect size to balance out the other table!
Below is a pic of the lamp already in the living room.
So I taped up the anything that wasn't brass and sprayed on a fresh coat of Valspars' metallic silver.
Next I added some jute to the white part of the base by spraying it with adhesive and then simply wrapping the jute onto the lamp. I also added a cute tassel to the neck of the lamp.
The lampshade was a simple score from Walmart...the cost was somewhere around $10 - $12.
