Spray Paint Rocks!

I think I mentioned this before, but I will spray paint pretty much anything and everything. It’s such a wonderful cheap and quick fix that I can’t seem to get enough of it. This evening I did one of those quick updates and so I thought I would share it.

I bought this lamp at a thrift store for $3.99. I loved the shape of it and I see them all the time at different stores for much more. Check out this one from West Elm with a price tag of $99. I think my little lamp was a pretty good deal!

All I had to do was add a bit of spray paint…

And, ta-da! A new wonderful lamp! Now all I need is a lampshade like the one at West Elm!

Not that there was really anything wrong with it before, but I thought it would add a bit more pizazz to have a metallic finish.

Another little spray paint project I recently completed was this little bird:

I took a before picture but I can’t find it so I decided to just share the after.

So, be on the lookout at your neighborhood thrift stores, there are treasures to be found! Which, by the way, last week I saw another lamp just like the one I bought at Goodwill for $5.99. Anyone want one?!
