Revamp your old lamp

So, part of the latest living room update was a little change in decor.  I really proved my blogger gumption and tested the heck out of my spray painting abilities.  Bloggers love spray paint.

One of my favorite additions was this antique store find:

I call him Sir Fidel.  I think he's supposed to be a door knocker?  Anyhow, he was pretty beat up and dingy looking, so I spray painted him pastel green and put him next to some framed scrap book paper on my shelf.  I love him.

The next thing I wanted to do was figure out how to revamp our ugly old lamp without spending a ton of money.  I had some spray paint left over from a wedding project, so I painted the base of the lamp an off white color.  Then I headed over to Target and snatched a new lamp shade (which also happened to be on clearance).  And ta-da! New lamp.

If you're hankering for an easy DIY project, I just found it for you.
