Brass Lamp Idea

2 Mar

Lately I have been coveting a certain brass table lamp something fierce.  But not just any old brass lamp mind you.  A seriously stylish futuristic one. Say hello to this beauty from Circa Lighting.

Now lets enjoy these spaces where it is used to great effect.

Now the Ralph Lauren version from Circa Lighting is $609 which I have to admit is less expensive then I anticipated.  But many of us do not have an extra $609 to spend on a table lamp.  But I remembered Ikea offers this piece in black or white and it is only $79.

 Could you spray paint or gold leaf the whole thing?  Hmmmmm, I would like to try it but then again if I mess it up I’m out $79.  My thought would be to practice on a cheap lamp from a thrift shop or dollar store. Any advice from the expert DIYers out there.  Anyone?  It would be a great weekend project.

Speaking of weekend, happy Friday all!!

If you guessed this:

You be right!

The Ikea Stockholm Rand area rug has been on my radar for awhile.  It disappeared from the website for a time but now it is back and it begs to be in my office.  And at only $199 for a 5 x 7  I don’t have to sweat the price. Yes, I need it but my office floor needs it most of all. It has been decided!
