I recently found myself in need of a new bedroom lamp. I passed my cute bird lamp onto my grandaughters bedroom where it fits perfectly. So I went to the Goodwill and found this $9 ginger jar lamp. I'm so sorry I don't have a before picture of it but you can see in the next photo that it was classic 90's peach.
I did my best to tape it before I painted it but as you can see I did a horrible job of it. It's okay though because I was planning to paint the wooden base black anyway. I wound up just spray painting the shade black too.
I am no DIY expert by any means but this was easy and the results were good enough for me. The trick to spraying the ceramic base is to keep the spray can a good 12" away and do multiple light coats so that there is no dripping. I used a satin finish but I can always apply a glossy finish if I feel like it.
So there you go. Have a wonderful weekend!
