Brass lamps updated with spray paint

I found this matching set of brass lamps at a thrift store for $3.03 each. I envisioned them painted and that is what I did. A few coats of Krylon white primer, then Krylon gloss white spray paint, and they were done. Full details and my plans for the lamp shades on my blog.

Love the addition of these lamps to my entryway.

    Great new look. Like the look of your chest also - what kind of paint did you use on that?

    Great makeover. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the drapes! If you could let me know where you bought them, or if you purchased the fabric. I am keeping my old curtains in the breakfast nook until I find 'just the right thing'. I think this is it!
