This was a SUPER SIMPLE lamp re-do for our guest room and I wasn't the first one to up-grade this lamp. I found the brass lamp at a local furniture consignment store for $12, it was already wired as an electric lamp but it was originally an oil lamp. It was still in working order but the wiring was pretty old and I didn't want to take any chances with old electrical wiring. First, I re-wired it with a lamp kit from the hardware store (comes with easy to follow instructions). Then I simply spray painted the base satin nickel to give it a more up to date look. I love how it turned out!
More guest room projects coming soon!
