A Simple Painted Project - Thrifted Lamp Base

One of my favorite things to do is a simple painted project. And when I say simple, I really do mean simple. I enjoy projects that can be completed in a short period of time with very little effort on my end. I really enjoy spray paint and anything that I can do with a small set of paint brushes and acrylic paint. I have done my share of painting furniture the old fashioned way, but I don't enjoy it, and do not consider it to be simple.

I am going to be posting a lot of these projects here over the next couple of months. I did a series of these on my old blog and really want this content to be here at Carry Grace. I really hope that you enjoy seeing these. They were all fun projects.

This is one of my all time favorites. I found this lamp base at the rescue mission. They happened to be running a special on lamps this particular day, so I only paid $1 for this lamp! I came home and found a can of orange spray paint in the cabinet. It was the perfect pop of color for this room... way back in the day. Unfortunately, as the room progressed, the orange didn't stay. Spray paint is easy, so you will see this lamp again this month sporting a different color. Oh, and the lampshade is by Better Homes and Gardens for Walmart. (Not sponsored)


  1. Love the color on this lamp that you chose, it looks a lot more modern and updated now! I love simple projects like these :)
