DIY Brass Lamp Makeover
I found this big old vintage brass lamp at Goodwill and knew I had to give it a makeover! I bought Annie Sloan chalk paint in the color Duck Egg Blue and knew it would look fabulous.
To start I washed it with just water and dried it good with a rag. Then I used blue painters tape and taped the top so no paint would get on it as well as the start of the cord. Then using a Annie Sloan paintbrush, I started at the bottom and did big strokes all the way around working my way up. Don't use too much or it'll get chunky. Let it dry for 1-2 hours. Then do a thin second coat.
Here's after the second coat has dried and I waxed it with Annie Sloan's Clear Wax to seal it.
I also added a white lampshade...I love it!
It's quite amazing what a little pop of color can do! I did no sanding either for prep.
