LUXE KITTEN | Drab to Chic Lamp DIY


Hey kittens!

Today I have a DIY for you all! I've had this old lamp sitting around for quite awhile now and I finally decided that it was time to give it an update! With a quick layer or two of spray paint I've refreshed one of my favourite pieces of decor!

Here is the lamp with it's original paint, as much as I loved it, it was a bit dated and you could tell. Now I've still got it but just updated! The cord itself also really dated the lamp but I painted that too so now you can't even tell!

I picked up a can of Krylon Colormaster Metallic spray paint in the colour Gold, approx. $6 CAD at Canadian Tire. I originally wanted to do black with a red light bulb for the eyes but decided on the gold because it went better with my decor!

I painted it with nice even strokes, letting off each pass to not waste any paint and get it anywhere I shouldn't be haha! I did this until the entire lamp was covered, rotating it along the way and making sure I got into every nook and cranny. I did do a second coat to make sure that everything was covered for sure and it wasn't patchy. This paint did a really good job of covering everything up quite easily.

Here it is lit up and on my TV stand, it may or may not stay there. It lights up through the cats eyes and illuminates them from the back as well. I think it's just such a gorgeous lamp and is really my style so I was quite glad that I could take it from drab to chic so quickly and easily!

Let me know what you thought of this DIY and whether you'd try it out!
