These old lamps have been bothering me for some time now. The problem is that I don't have an unlimited lamp budget to update them with. The other day I decided enough is enough and you can probably see why. The shades are outdated, a little to froo froo, and cast a dirty glow. While I'm complaining, the color is also drab and boring.
I decided to give the old lamps a new coat of paint...just some leftover paint from the sun-room. New drum shades were purchased from a local hardware store. The outcome is what I was after; a modern classic look that is nice, but not too fussy. Next comes the mirror made by my father hanging above the sideboard. Viola!
Affordable updates...the lamps get to stay a while longer.
