Horchow Inspired, Lamp Makeover

Howdy folks!  I hope you had a nice weekend and enjoyed the spirit of the holiday with your family and friends.  My weekend was pretty low-key.  I didn't do much at all, which was fine by me!  On Saturday I went to Home Depot in search of some spray paint for my pineapple lamp.  With so many options I began to feel overwhelmed and decided to leave.  I want my lamp to be beautiful!  So I went home and searched the internet for some inspiration...


I came across this awesome pineapple lamp from Horchow, it was just the inspiration I needed!



As a reminder, this is what I started with.

And here she is now, all shined up and ready to glow!

Yellow suits her so well!


After taping the lamp off, I sprayed it yellow.  No primer needed this time!



I found the perfect lampshade at Target.  Target Never Disappoints!







I love this lamp with its new look.  There's nothing better than finding used treasures then turning them into something new!

  51. Never in my wildest dreams would I have guessed this brass lamp would have looked this fantastic in yellow! Oh my goodness. I saw this post in my feed but saved it until I could take time to read it because I knew it would provide inspiration for my current thrifted lamp finds. (Check out my lamp post and if you have some ideas, feel free to share.) This makeover is outstanding!
