Lamp Makeover

Just a little before and after. I got this lamp for about $3 from a thrift store. I used it for awhile as is, but wasn't happy with the color too much. I primed the lamp with a gray primer, and used a flat black spray paint,(I've really been into flat paint lately). I then used a metallic gold paint on the inside. You can't tell from the pictures, but instead of a regular bulb, I used small round completely white bulbs, so as to not take away from the gold interior.
I love the way it dressed up such a blah $3 lamp.
