DIY Glam Lamp

Good morning everyone!  I am so sorry that I didn't post yesterday.  The projects we are working on were not ready.  I do have my glam lamp ready for reveal.  I purchased her at Goodwill for $4.99.  It was half painted pink, and the other was brass.  I fell in love instantly!  I had never thought of doing a half paint job... Brilliant!!!!!  I knew I wanted to paint the other half white.  I wanted it to have a black drum shade, but after stealing the white shade from my bedroom I love that too!  Here are some before and afters.
I used some Brasso to shine up the brass.
Taped off the brass area, and used some glossy white spray paint.
Three coats later..... Beauty Mate!

  1. I wouldn't have thought to paint a lamp in half vertically either, but it looks awesome! Great job on it :)

  2. This is so great! The combination of white and brass is surpricingly outstanding. According to my opinion, the white shade makes it look more expensive and glamour!

  3. Gorgeous! I love the idea of painting half of it. So clever. And your choice for white is perfect alongside the brass.
