Lamps reborn with Krylon

I feel like these lamps have been reborn with Krylon.  I know I got a great great deal on these babies @ $5 each how could you go wrong I know some people will say (and some on my friends did tell me) why change out the brass I just felt it was too heavy and weighed the room down visually and I wanted it to be lighter & brighter. Is that not what a  lamp should do?? Lighten and brighten? Right?

Since there were two lamps I got to do a side by side before and after.  I don’t know why but I get very excited about that.  It’s not often in a project you get to do that.
Hope you are as excited seeing them.  😉

Here is how the lamps looked in my living room for the first two weeks, while I lived with them to see if they were an OK fit for me and the room.   lol
And I totally think they are a FIT.  Definitely makeover time.  Time for them to stick around and brighten the place up.  In more ways then one.

I used Krylon metallic paint in silver.  A few quick sprays over newspaper in my back yard did the trick real quick.

Ta Daaaaa

I really do think these

    I agree – looks much better in silver.

  7. It looks great! although I kind of like the before better. It just depends on what style you’re going for. One of my favorite blogs is Vintage Revivals and Mandi uses old brass a lot. I love her style.

    It’s nice to be able to see the before and after side-by-side. Love the silver! I think it brightens up that tabletop – nice contrast, there. 🙂

    Stopping by from Trash-2-Treasure Tuesday. 🙂

    I love the after, so much brighter! I like to say if you can’t fix it with duct tape or spray paint, ditch it. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing on Tout It Tuesday! Hope to see you next week.

    Much better! Yeah there is just something about that gold tone that I don’t care for either on many things. I think it came out great! Thanks for sharing at Cap Creations. Have a great week.
