Butter Off

Sure, Julia’s lamps wouldn’t win the Ugly Lamp Contest, but they weren’t going to win any beauty contests either.  They look like butter churners … very fancy butter churners.  Perfect for those formal butter churning occasions.  Or better yet, the perfect candidates for a little spray paintin’ and stripe gaining.  I just love the new look. Who knew there was such hipness to be had!

  6. Amazing! Who knew you could paint over that hideous glass/china?

  7. I really love your blog! This post was an inspiration for my old lamp redo and it turned out so cute, so thanks!!

So when I found these 7 brass lamps for $30, that’s a little over $4 a lamp, I was thrilled. (Click here to see another one of my painted lamp projects which was featured on Better After) […]
