New Life For An Old Lamp

Did you know that old lamps can be painted? Start by cleaning the lamp of dust and dirt. Then apply Rustoleum type paint with a sponge or sponge brush. It will probably require two coats but the textured finish that the sponge gives is great for hiding flaws. We used this technique to transform an old brass lamp into a wrought iron looking lamp that fit in perfectly with our rustic decor.
