Not only do I love ORB – I love coat trees. I don’t have a lot of room by our front door but I knew I would find some place for this. It was $10 and sold brass, heavy and good quality. As you can see it’s beat up and really tarnished.
This lamp was $3.99 and didn’t come with a shade which was fine by me…they tend to have a smell. Fabric items I like to purchase new unless I can wash it. What I love is the arm on it. I saw a floor lamp too and I should have gotten it. Shoot!
I did prime the coat tree but not the lamp. The lamp hardly took any paint but the coat tree took a whole spray can. There are so many curves and details.
Here is what they look like now. Aren’t they beautiful! I used a shade I had on a lamp I wasn’t using anymore and put it on the girls play table. The coat tree actually ended up in my daughter’s room and it’s perfect for hanging her girly stuff.
I have a few more things that I am going to turn from gold to beautiful. Give it a try it’s amazing stuff!
Here is a picture of the paint I used. Thanks Judy for asking.
Look at what we are working on! You will never believe what we turned this into.
