innovations in light.

Here's a project my sister and I embarked on together. She painted a lamp for her apartment, and I painted a lamp for my house...twice. I cannot even begin to explain the level of unattractive 80'sness that revolved around these lamps before they had a makeover. Each one was a thrift store find for about $3.  Unfortunately, I don't have a before picture of my lamp, but here is my sister's before.
 and during the process...
and my lamp painted the 1st time...
Why the transformation from the 1st attempt? I kept it like this for several months.. but I am currently introducing some new bolder colors into our living room and it didn't make the cut.
