We're still in a (furnished) unit (with all of our belongings (in boxes), including our furniture) waiting for ours to be finished ... we'll be moving in in a week or so ... or we'll be looking elsewhere. Needless to say, it's really tight in here - especially since this place is smaller than our last. We'll be moving some things into a storage unit, once we unpack and see what we really need for the next few months.
Just wanted to share since I haven't been commenting (on other blogs) or responding to comments here as much as I have been. So a HUGE thank you for sticking with me while we get things sorted out! You all are the best :)
We may have limited space, but that hasn't stopped us from working on projects!!
A week or so ago, I picked up this little lamp at Home Goods. I haven't been near a Home Goods since we lived in Tennessee, so I was beyond excited to be back!! I picked up a yellow console table and this black and silver lamp. Great shape, but why it's two colors .. I'm not sure .. something that small should be just one color, just saying :)
But it had great lines and was only $30. I haven't found one under $80, so I was sold!
I then primed with my favorite bonding primer - Zinsser Cover Stain, it sticks really well, and once dry has a thick durable coat.
I picked up Brittany Makes favorite gold spray paint at Blick Art Supply when we drove through Chicago. It's a professional artist spray paint, but formulated to stick to almost everything.
Brittany's recommendation definitely didn't fall short! It adhered and covered well, the color was perfect - not too yellow/green and not too rosy, just in the middle, but definitely on the warmer side. This is my go to gold now!
On a funny side note, I was holding the paint can in my legs as I bent down I hit the nozzle against my stomach and the paint went straight through my shirt .. it did come off .. eventually :)
I LOVE how it turned out! Definitely worth a little extra money for the spray paint! It's about $8 vs $4.
I just love it - it makes me smile :)
