Michelle from That Mommy Blog roughed up the surface on her $6 thrift score lamp ever so slightly before applying three coats of Valspar's Mediterranean Gloss. She also painted the base and new finial in Oil-Rubbed Bronze and bought a new shade in white ("for now").
The revamped lamp looks so classy you'd never guess it was a cheap thrift score. Good job Michelle!
