After: "Shiny Happy Orange Lamp!"

From Carlene:

Here's what he (crafty husband) did:

(all this stuff is from the hobby shop for model

  • sanded

  • primed with a white primer

  • sprayed with orange lacquer

  • sprayed with glossy clear coat

  • new black cord from Salvation Army clock
  • Here's the key word if you're gonna do this...remember...Ventilation!
    Thanks Carlene and Tony! See the original post here.
