You remember my invisible table post…..don’t ya?
If you don’t…..click here.
Well, I also have an invisible lamp.
My wood toned house….which I LOVE……sometimes swallows up dark objects.
Like the dark lamp, on top of the dark table, on top of the dark floors.
So, I wondered what would happen if I tried to lighten up things a bit…..
Without buying a new lamp.
This is a lamp “in process”.
I’m not finished yet.
Want to see the before and after….so far?
I painted it using my “Valspar” clearance, never-ending sample.
I STILL have a 1/2 of a little jar left.
These little samples are sooooooo neat!
Especially when you get it on clearance.
Here you go again.
Now you see it…..
Now you don’t.
I will show you tomorrow how I did it……..after I find the right shade.
Just so you know…..this was not the right shade.
But I still have plans for this pretty green shade.
Like the difference?
The only money will be in what I pay for a shade.
Let’s see what I can find.
Let me know what you think!
