So I had some fun over the holiday weekend. I bought this $3.00 nasty plastic, brass and glass ball lamp at Thrift World .
It has good bones but boy was it ugly but now it's beautiful. Ta Da! One coat of primer and several Coats of high gloss
silver paint and a ribbed black shade to coordinate with the ribbed glass balls. I think I'll hit it with some Crystal clear to seal it.
The before pictures are below.
You can not see in the pictures but the gold finish was peeling off the plastic base and looked really gross. There where some gooey felt pads
on the bottom that where a after thought from someone and way to big. I love Trash to Treasure!
