I had an old lamp that needed some updating. The color of the lamp and shade were a darkish off-white and the outdated pleated fabric shade was stained in several places.
After taping off the bulb housing and the cord, I took it outside to spray paint it with RustOleum Specialty Lacquer, high luster coating white. I also carefully removed the fabric from the shade, leaving the ribbing on the top and bottom and spray painted that as well!
I have more plans for this lamp, but it is lovely as is for now! Don’t you think?
