Clowning Around

Clowning Around

It was certainly lights out for this overly vibrant relic. It looks like it came from a going-out-of-business sale of a failed southwestern/circus themed hotel.  A hotel I would name: Sunset Under the Big Top.  But Husfruen decided it could be saved with a few coats of black Hammerite spray paint to give it more of a hammered metal finish, vs. a primary colored punch in the eye.  Looks absolutely fabulous!  Check it out on her blog Hilltop House.

    Husfruen’s lamp is great-her blog, “Hilltop House” is awesome, and she has a charming, bucolic home. Lots of fairy tale photos of Christmas in Norway.
