Spray Painted Upcycled floor lamp
Last week I transformed a dreary old floor lamp with spray paints into a colourful statement piece. This project was so easy and didn’t require any specialist skills; as long as you can shake a can of spray paint you can revamp a lamp.
I picked up this floor lamp really cheaply from my local auction house. I wasn’t sure if it worked, that didn’t matter as this was a rather old lamp I changed the electrics anyway, just to be on the safe side. All the stuff you need to do this electrical update with can be bought from your local diy store and is as easy as changing a plug. You maybe lucky and pick up a floor lamp that has had its electrics updated recently.

How I upcycled my floor lamp
Before I started this project I had no idea how my upcycled floor lamp would turn out. I had never spray painted fabric like this before, but felt I had to try it as it was the only way I was going to achieve the bright rainbow effect I was after. As you can see it worked out really well, I love my new floor lamp and the pop of colour it now brings to the room.
