First, I guess I should explain that while some women have shoe fetishes, I have furniture fetishes... sadly however, not just one: lamps, tables, curtains too. Who am I kidding I love it all. But, I do notice myself loitering around the lamps, tables, and curtain isles most often. As has been the case in the weeks following my "Lamp Post." I kept noticing great lamps, everywhere I looked more great lamps. So, what was it? What was I noticing? Then I realized I was being drawn to their great color or patina. I also noticed, not one of them was just plain black. Why then, would I settle for a pair of plain black lamps?
Time to paint! And time to recap...
|You may remember the pair in their original state.|
|Then the painting began.|
|I even got your opinions on which shade I should choose. By the way- I choose the Ross shade (which won by popular vote as well. )|
I thought I was done... until I remembered "It is just paint, and time." Which translates in my mind to "Time to play..."
|I thought I might try green, but it was too army like.|
|I do love this color. But, it is too solid.|
|I took some steel wool and buffed and scuffed the edges; added some extra distressing.|
|At home in my room.|
