Yesterday I briefly mentioned wanting these artichoke lamps. They are to die for but way out of my price range especially since when I buy a lamp I always buy 2. For symmetry.
Here are the real artichoke lamps in all there colorful glory.
And way too expensive. About $600.00 a piece.
Well, I have these lamps.
I know, I know, pineapples and artichokes are not the same thing, and this lamp isn't as colorful or nearly as wide as the other. But I was thinking...thanks to Sherry at Young House Love, I can spray paint them and add a nice white drum shade and voila, new lamps. That's the idea anyway. I picked up spray paint primer and spray paint on my lunch today. Hopefully tonight they will start their transformation into.....ORANGE pineapples. I have a vision. Hopefully it works but if not there's always lots of other colors to try.
I'll leave you with some more images of my inspiration.
