Vintage lamp love,diy idea
I love before and afters do you?
My other half is very talented (toh) he has ‘spray guns’ these are special men things, apparently you fill them with a particular mix of paint sometimes called two pack?
(I thought that was a wrapper rock star person)!
Then you simply screw on special heads and spray things.
If you add to this his love of perfection …then hmmmm…
Lately I figured out and I am a very lucky lady.
You see he restores and spray things for me!!
I say to him “can I have this in yellow, that one in blue and that one over there in red?”
He then takes bits of rusty old junk away and brings back delightful treasures that you simply could not buy in the shops
I like that.
Sometimes he mumbles a bit but on the whole he loves to get his guns out and play in his workshop…
For example last weekend he took away this….
and brought back this… (just the stand)
So are you ready for the befores and afters..?
I need to tell you that the finish on this is like the one on your car, super super shiny, perfectly smooth and tough….did I mention glossy?
The shade was one I refurbished last year.
I intend making a new one for this splendid sunshine yellow stand…
I even have the old lampshade, its gorgeous and it has fluted edges, it is also very large, so will sit better than this one.
However that is a ‘before and after’ for another day
watch this space.
What contrasting colours would you suggest?
PS As always the talented other half appreciates compliments and is tremendously encouraged by them…so don’t be shy!
