Ode To Spray Paint

I don't know if you remember the post that I wrote about the things that I found with my sister-in-law when we went "junkin'" (and I don't know how to link to my own blog so someone needs to teach me that!) but I bought a little beige table cloth and I am excited to show you what I did with it!



First, my bed side table had this terrible lamp sitting on it for, ah, almost 12 years....I was so over it! But I didn't really want to buy something else because it is a good height for reading. And
I wanted to spend money on other things... other than a lamp.






And it sported this terrible, dusty, old boring shade....





SOOOO I ran to Lowe's, got me a new, cutie little shade, and I got me a trusty can of black spray paint and went NUTS! :) My husband kept saying, "Are you SURE!?' Absolutely!





I wish I had done a before shot of my bedside table, but I didn't! SO here's the after!





I redid the lamp, added the beige table cloth (that I got for $12 from an antique place), rearranged the pictures and added the apothecary jar. I really like it a lot and it gave our bedroom a totally different feel. :)




Yeah! for a can of paint and a cheap table cloth! I am trying to add a cottage feel to my bedroom witout having to redo every thing. I think this helped. :)

It looks great! I'm looking at some boring old lamps right now. You might have inspired me!

WOW! What a major transformation! Amazing what some Rust-o-leum can do, huh? I love your bedside table, too.
Have a great week.

So cute! Love me some spray paint. Back in the 'day' I took one of those funky glass ginger jar lamps and painted it with that texturizing paint and it looked really cool. Being a painter's daughter I know what a coat of paint can do for anything so I love me some paint girl!

Good job!
