A friend recently brought me a lamp to paint. Hmm.... I wasn't quite sure how this was going to work because of all of the weaving and texture that was on the lamp. And let's face it, if it didn't work....that was ok too. :)
First, I gave it a good coat of primer.
Then, I used acrylics to match the little dish she gave me.
She is working on getting a new lampshade but the base came out great. So don't throw out your old lamps....paint them!
