Honestly I thought I knew exactly what I was doing but turns out my simple idea of spray painting a second hand lamp wasn't exactly as easy as I expected. Plus it didn't help that I have zero experience with a can of spray paint. Regardless I had this "vision" of a bright yellow lamp to add some colour to our living room and I was determined to make it happen.
First thing I discovered was that spray painting needs a form of technique that I was, and still am not very familiar with. Jonathan saw the lamp and suggested that it was too cold out and I needed to bring it in, also that I needed to spray thinner layers. Sadly by that time it was already pretty drippy but I tried to adjust accordingly.
Working on any project makes you fall in love with it more than any random person since they didn't put their time or love into it. Which is probably why Jonathan only rolled his eyes at my new creation. Haha. He'll soon appreciate the extra lighting in our home when those dark evenings come.
