Country Rooster Makeover

This lamp makeover from Liz at Love Grows Wild has a cute story to go along with it.  When Liz moved into her husband’s farmhouse as a newlywed, he let her have free reign with the decorating and organizing.  With one exception:  Liz couldn’t get rid of the ugly rooster lamp made with love by her husband’s uncle.

“For 4 years I moved that black rooster lamp from table to table, hoping that it would suddenly match my decor and become a gorgeous, country-chic piece that everyone would be jealous of. I even painted it burgundy red to try to give it some new life, but alas, it was still the ugly rooster lamp that I couldn’t get rid of,” Liz says.  Recently, Liz pulled out the paint and tried again, determined to make that rooster beautiful.  I think the distressed white finish and vintage French lettering worked, don’t you?
