Desk Lamp Makeover

Before
We had been looking for a tall desk lamp and Mike brought this one home after a quick trip to the thrift shop. We opted to paint the base white and pair it with a linen shade.
After
The very bottom of the base has several levels of detail which are accentuated by the white paint.
The linen shade keeps with the simplicity of the lamp yet adds a nice contrast of color.
And I think it fits quite nicely with the decor and colors of the room.

Happy Saturday!
