So you don't really like that plain ol' black lamp that you've had since college, but can't afford a new one...? Try a new look for very few $! My grandma taught me that you CAN paint pretty much anything, although I'm sure I'm not the expert she is! This project required a can of primer spray paint, a can of Rustoleum "Oregano" spray paint and a little sandpaper. All of which I either had or purchased but am also using for other projects (more on that later). A $1.50 natural woven trim added to the lampshade with craft glue and a little paint and I feel like I have a new lamp! A little distressed and a little more contemporary than the plain black! Don't be afraid to paint something you love that's the wrong color or just something you can't really afford to get rid of- a little elbow grease and your husband will think you went shopping!
