My in laws gave me this lamp when they were cleaning out their garage. I hardly ever turn down free and it had great lines so I gladly brought it home with me. I especially loved the gold base. I knew it was just a few coats of paint away from being pretty. It sat in my garage for a while until I came across this beautiful DIY lamp on Made by girl. It was just the inspiration I needed.
So, I started with this.
Then, I taped off the parts that were gold and primed and painted the rest white.
Then I just added some random black brush strokes and sealed it with a coat of Rustoleum clear gloss for a shiny finish. Super easy and done in a day. I like the punch of pattern that it adds and that it's not your typical solid color lamp.
