Before/After :: Painting Lamps


The nursery gets excellent daylight throughout the day and it has overhead lighting for the evening.  However, we needed something dimmer/softer for bedtime.

I immediately thought of a pair of lamps I bought many years ago from Target that was just sitting in the corner collecting dust.  The only problem is….


They’re pink & brown.

KT wrinkled his nose at them when I showed them to him.  Not exactly what we had in mind for a boy’s nursery.  The solution fell out of my mouth even before I had a chance to think:  “I’ll painted them! Black and white strips!”


Easy Peasy.  I’m glad I was able to breathe life back into these old lamps.
