Another Lamp gets a facelift

I’ve had two of these black lamps for a few years now. They just don’t seem to go with my home anymore
and I have never liked the lamp shades.
Since my obsession with chalk paint continues, I decided to try it on these lamps.

After: two coats of old white Annie Sloan Chalk paint


Light sanding…


A new lampshade…


 Two “new” lamps to use in my country home master bedroom.
Before you decide to give up on that old lamp why not try some paint!
Thanks for coming by,


This week I am linking up with

    Thanks EllenaElizabeth! I bought a pair of lamps at a garage sale from the 60’s and painted then with spray paint (before i discovered the chalk paint). That post was back in February…don’t know if you got a chance to look at it. I suggest you paint the lamps:)

    That’s a very lovely transformation you’ve carried out. I have an old lamp I bought my mother in the 1980’s and I want to give it a face lift after my back operation. Not sure what to do with it yet as the house we’re in is only temporary (I hope but we’ve been here 3 years now). Haven’t done anything much to the place except for the gardens as we were hoping to move on quicker than this. I’m your latest follower.

    Hi Suzan, just saw your comment on my other post. Thanks so much for dropping by. I stopped painting for awhile but now that I discovered chalk paint I paint everything as well. These are the second set of lamps I painted, the first were with spray paint.

    Love this transformation – I paint absolutely everything – but haven’t done a lamp yet ( on my to do list – and this is definitely inspirational )
    I’m your newest follower – would love to have you visit and follow back when you have the chance!

    Thanks Kerryanne! I thought there might be something wrong when I did not see a photo but was not sure what to do. I will resubmit. Thanks again, I am pretty new at this.

    Thanks for linking up at Shabbilicious Friday Margaret. Your lamp make-over is terrific but unfortunately your photo didn’t link up at the party. Perhaps you could pop back over and resubmit the link so others will come visit you and see your Frenchy lamp 🙂

    Thanks! These are the second pair that I painted but the first with chalk paint. The other lamps I spray painted, they are ceramic and the spray paint worked well. Don’t you love it when you can transform something old?
