I'm still getting the hang of this blogging business so I didn't even think of taking a "before" pic until I'd already started. But here is a before pic where I just happened to get the lamp in a different picture. Sorry for all the vitamins and junk around it (oops!).
I put a couple of coats of the paint...Ocean Teal semi gloss wall paint.
I knew better than to try painting the lamp base with that paint though as the base was glass.
I did, however, have some spray paint I was pretty sure would work :)
And I was right again...Crazy, right? lol
It's hard to tell in the pictures but the butterflies and the lampshade are VERY close in color and it looks much better in person.
I love how it turned out and it matches the bedroom perfectly now! And since I used only supplies that I already had it was a FREE transformation--and folks, it doesn't get much cheaper than that ;)
