It’s amazing what spray paint can do to transform and update a lamp. Lighting can be expensive so before you throw out that lamp, that ugly outdated lamp, try a little spray paint. You might also try local thrift stores or garage sales, look for beautiful shapes and lines. I’ve searched the web and here are some of my favorite transformations.

I am currently in the middle of collecting old, ornate, flea market/thrift store frames with the intention of creating a beautiful art installation. I’m going with white but that’s a personal choice.
This is what I have so far
Just found these gems, plan to remove the mirrors
This is my dream installation – although my walls are not white, the sizes and layout is what I’m working towards

I’ve decided to join The Nester in the 31 Days series. She has a wonderful blog and I’ve been following her for a while now as she creates her “imperfect” home. I love her mantra “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.” For the entire month of October, along with her and many other bloggers, I’ll post on my blog everyday. My subject is dedicated to objects transformed by spray paint. I love spray paint ; it’s easy, affordable, and can be used on pretty much anything. My favorite brands are Krylon and Valspar, I always prime first (both Krylon and Valspar have spray primers). When using spray paint, I generally do it outside on a big sheet or drop cloth or in the garage with doors open.
Day 1 – Spray Paint Glass Bottles
It is so simple and easy to transform glass bottles with spray paint. First prime and paint any bottle, any color you want. Check out some of these ideas. Shop your own home or local thrifts stores and garages sales
Root beer bottles, so cute!
Love the twine embellishment
Rolled in Epsom salt and then spray painted
Here is my recent project, I found a bunch of oil bottles at Goodwill for .50; I like their shape and love it even more with a number stenciled on it.
Burlap makes me happy and lately I’ve been totally burlap happy! I use it a lot in my own home, on the windows, lamp shades, table cloth, and even christmas stockings. I love the texture it adds to my home and spaces I decorate. It’s very inexpensive and comes in a variety of textures and colors. Recently I staged a model home (will post on that soon when I get the pics) and used it in the nursery, yes the nursery! The uses for the fabric are limitless, here are some of my favorites.
I love the juxtaposition of the burlap paired with the romantic elements, gorgeous

Love the white on burlap from ballarddesigns.com

Budget/DIY Tip – update a shade you already own using spray adhesive and wrap burlap around the shade. Finish the edges with trim or ribbon or, as I prefer , leave as is
