Ginger Snap Crafts: Lamp Makeover with Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint

Lamp Makeover with Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint

This post is brought to you by DecoArt.

Hello! Today I’m excited to show you my most recent project with Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint. Yay! :) (Do remember last month I when showed you my new kitchen updates using this amazing paint? If not check them out HERE.) Today I’m going to show you how I made this quick & easy makeover for the lamp in our master bedroom. So keep reading to see how I did it. :)

Isn’t it fun what a little paint color can do?

For this project you’ll just need a few things:
Americana Décor Chalky Finish paint (I used the color Treasure.)
paint brush
painter’s tape
sand paper

First you’ll tape off any areas you don’t want painted. I taped around the top & taped over part of the cord.

Then I painted two coats of paint on the lamp base ~ letting it dry between coats.


After the paint had dried completely, I used some sandpaper to lightly distress the lamp base.

Then I put our lamp back together. I’m loving the new pop of color. So much better than boring white. ha! ;)(To see how I made the glitter framed art you can check out the tutorial HERE.)
