Brass Lamp painted!

I Love Target! 

I don't know about you, but those dollar bins lure me in every time I walk through the doors. . .

As of late, I have been loving their lamp shades.

I am working on an extra bedroom, and because I don't know what the end result of this room should be, I am Slow!
However, I had an old lamp. It was great back in the day, but it lost it's appeal. Really, it was ugly!
I knew I was going to give it a new life, I just didn't know how until I found this lamp shade at Target.

I loved the look and the price was a bonus - $19.99.

I took the brass floor lamp and spray primed it gray, then used a metallic  spray paint to finish it off. Some where I have a before picture, but not to be found!

This lamp has great character, it just needed a some paint and a new lampshade!

It adds a lot to the room!

The Hold up on finishing this room - The Bed!
We bought it a long  time ago, and paid a lot of money for it back in the day. 
I want to paint it and can't quite bring myself to do it.
It don't have a problem painting a thrift store find,
what do you think?

Life is great!  I am a new Grandma of a BEAUTIFUL baby boy, AND my son-in-law is graduating from law school, and moving my daughter and other grand son back!
