So i picked up a set of free lamps off kijiji.ca (its like craigslist, but Canadian).  They were awful, but i really need some new lamps for my living room.. so said what the heck.. Wink  Then, I found an online article about painted yellow lamps similar to these (I can't put my hand on the article right now....) So that's what I did.  I did 2 coats of primer, and 2 coats of paint, then 2 coats of high gloss clear spray paint.  I love them.. I will be picking up drum shades for them eventually, I ended up picking up these shades because I couldn't find a right size drum shade without paying too much (imo), I like these ones just the same...but I was so happy with them, I wanted to post them right away. Cheesy
I've uploaded a new pic of them in my newly decorated living room!


Thanks for checking them out! Smiley
