... tho lamps can't see *scratches chin*
Ahright. My desk lamp's color wasn't cutting it anymore (the top was green), so I brought out the paint!!
I gave it one full coat of Acrylic paint: Licorice- Plaid ( except the knob at the back)
Luckily I put it on to see that the green was still showing through the top!!
When the 1st coat dried, I went in with a thick second coat painting the knob as well ... and voila, it's back in action.
Downside: The paint will chip easily since I use this lamp a lot so I have to be careful. I even decided not to put my pens and pencils in it anymore.
Upside: It looks dapper!
Paint is a wonderful thing :)
