Home Decor: Lamp and Mirror Makeover


So I promise not everything I'm making and/or making over is black! In fact I have a couple of colorful projects to share coming up. But, today I'm sharing an easy update to an existing lamp and mirror. 

  • Items to make over
  • Craft Smart Multi Surface Premium Satin Paint, Black
  • Martha Stewart High Gloss Multi Surface Paint 
  • Craft Smart Metallic Paint Silver

I started with this brass Stiffel lamp we've had forever. I originally thought I was going to spray paint it but the weather's been iffy lately and I'm not exactly patient so I decided to test whether Craft Smart's multi-surface paint would do the trick. Boy did it! It went on very smoothly from the fist coat and I only needed to do two coats to get great coverage. 

LOVE this paint! The original shade was a parchment color and I wanted a different shape. We found this one at Target. I was very nervous I'd muck up a nice lamp but now, I love it even more! 

The mirror also went with our prior style and color scheme so it too got a makeover. 

I cut a circle of contact paper to cover the glass then painted it with a matte black paint, dry brushed with silver and then again with the Martha Stewart Gloss paint which added a bit of depth that's hard to see in the picture. 

I wanted to capture the essence of the original which wasn't a solid finish.  

I have plans to spray paint the table since we're moving away from the brass but need monsoon season to calm down since it's definitely an outside job! 

I'm very happy how they work with the Thrifted Candlesticks I've used on this same table, and am looking for some tall branches and vase fillers for my big vase (Pottery Barn) but didn't want to wait until it's all done to share!
