"I LOVE LAMP."
Yes, I do. I love the soft glow. I love the home-y feel of a lit lamp (a little different than 'homie', as in 'Yo, Homie!').
I don't love how boring some of my lamps are.
We have a trio of lamps (two large, one small) that ALL look exactly the same. BORING. Plus the small one had a broken lampshade... so time to update!
Along with the lamp, I used:
three wire hangers
silver floral wire
Rustoleum Metallic Finish (silver)
Rustoleum Gloss Seaside
I really like the look of bare wire metal frame AND I love the Herringbone pattern. My lamp already had four metal supports, but to create the herringbone look, I needed four more thick pieces of metal (like the supports). I used wire cutters to cut the hangers into four pieces long enough to hook around both the top and the bottom of the frame. With the extra supports in place, I used the floral wire to create the herringbone pattern. You can make the 'stripes' as close together or far apart as you'd like! I think making them even closer together would look great, but I wanted mine to be more 'bare bones'. I painted the lampshade with the silver spray paint and the lamp base with the Seaside.
And that's IT! It was a VERY easy update with a brand new look!!
Thanks for reading!
