Granny’s Lamps Get a New Look

At her blog, Making It In the Mountains, Kristi tells us she’s been planning on giving her Granny’s lamps a makeover ever since her mom passed them along.  “I LOVE the crystal, but the faded brass just wasn’t my thing and the lamp shades were a bit too traditional for my taste,” she says.

Kristi decided that glossy white was the look she was going for, so she taped over the crystal sections to protect them, and spray painted the brassy parts.  She was able to find just the right shades to top these lamps once they were painted, adding a little texture in contrast to the base of the lamps.  They look great in her master bedroom!

  3. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a amazing job with this. In addition, the blog loads
    super fast for me on Opera. Excellent Blog!
