DIY: Metallic Gold Desk Lamp

Glitter N Glue DIY Gold Spray Paint Desk LampThis Sunday Hollywood is throwing a big ole party for a little man named Oscar! Now imagine if the award show was sponsored by Krylon and once an actor won they were handed a boring grey metal statue and a can of metallic gold spray paint. They were then escorted backstage where cameras were set up to capture them actually spray paint their Oscar statue LIVE. Not that would be a show worth watching! LOL

You guys know how I love to take something ordinary and transform it to extraordinary with a few coats of spray paint.  Remember Olly the owl? (Click here if you don’t) He was salvaged from the $1 store and now lives the most fantastic and glamorous life on my shelf. Today it’s time for my boring desk lamp is get a new lease on life.

    I subscribed to your blog a few weeks ago from a curbly post or something and thought I’d “wait and see what this gals’s up to” to before I left any comments….and I have to say…I LOVE THIS BLOG!!! I should have known though…silly me…I mean, c’mon…it’s glitter…and it’s glue…”Duh, self.”

    Anyway, looking forward to trying this as I have a stainless lamp that’s very similar to this one and, in its current state, looks a little out of place in my living room. Besides, who doesn’t love an excuse to spray paint something! Give that bunny a pat from me!

  10. Should make sure you use a bulb in low wattage because the spray paint can catch fire or you can try engine paint that works on things that get really hot
