I've had this old quirky elephant lamp from Target for several years, and although I loved its silly charm, I felt like it was in need of an update. Using some fabric, and new shade, and some spray paint, I managed to change the look of my old friend.
After cleaning the elephant base thoroughly (although it looks like wood, it was actually some sort of plastic), I allowed it to dry and then covered it with a pastel blue, all-surface spray paint. Several coats later, it was finished: fresh new take on an old junky lamp!
