Has the warmth and glam of the golden
trend captured your attention?
It has mine!
And so continuing with this year's theme of working with what I have when it comes to any updates in my home, I've been contemplating giving these black lamps purchased years ago a golden update. What sealed the deal was spying a metal lamp at Target with a golden finish that nearly made it into my cart...until I realized I could recreate the same look with a tube of Rub 'n Buff using the lamps I already had at home.
A table lamp on one end of the sofa...
...and a floor lamp on the other.
They didn't have a say in the matter, once I pulled out a new tube of this golden magic.
I didn't want a solid coverage, and quickly discovered that applying Rub 'n Buff with a fan brush in alternating directions provided just the look I was going for...a "burnished metal" finish.
Pretty fabulous I was thinking!
(you gotta love it when things go right...)
Lights on, Lights off.
Good enough to try it again...
...on the floor lamp.
And FYI, a tube of this stuff goes a long way.
I ended up using only half the tube to cover the two lamps.
Bravo. Two "new" lamps for about $3.00.
I'm loving the warm, softer touch they bring to the space.
A couple other lamps in my house had better take cover...
