Long ago I purchased this lamp at the Goodwill for 4.99. It was ugly but I saw the potential.
I wanted something for my little office that would bring some gold color, but of course I did not want to pay too much in getting a new one. So I tried the Rustoleum metallic gold paint and let me tell you, this product is AWESOME! (and no, I am not getting paid or sponsored)
I cleaned it up really well and let it dry. Then I taped the light bulb area with tape and covered the wire with aluminum foil. I gave it a light spray, let it dry and repeated the process three times. I did not even applied primer and the paint still looks good!
I love how shiny it looks and how smooth it is!
Quick and easy “new” lamp for less than $10!!!
