Brass is Ugly

Clear back in July my mom found a telescoping floor lamp for $35 marked down from $199. Totally awesome, right? One major flaw though. It was brass. I think everyone can agree that brass is ugly.


But for that price I was willing to look past the initial ugliness. The solution for it? Spray paint (Valspar Metallic Silver).


It ended up being a nice, inexpensive floor lamp.




I’ve been moving it around the house trying to find the perfect spot, but that’s its temporary resting place.

Has anyone else painted anything brass? Or gotten any sweet deals on lamps?

I’ve lost my mojo.

But I promise I’ll be getting it back next week. Full force. Fo’ sho.

And here’s a picture just so this post isn’t only one sentence. And because I think it’s funny that we both have awkward folded hands. I used the self timer so we weren't exactly prepared.


Catch ya on the flip side!
