Your going to PAINT BRASS ????????

A hugh find today while at an Estate sale with Mr. Wonderful....Actually there were quite a few but this is as far as I've gotten in the sharing dept....I started painting and then remembered to shoot it for the "Before" photos....

When I mentioned I would be painting it ...You could hear her suck in air and hesitate a moment before she said "Really?" Ha! Ha!

Beautiful detail...

I just finished two coats, ( by hand) No spray paint on this one., and need to do one more. There is a rod that can be added for a Shade or You can use it the way I'm going to with 4 white low wattage bulbs for a soft evening light. Hopefully I can share tomorrow evening when I return from a Day with the Grands...HAPPY SATURDAY!!! my friends....Hope you experience a great summer day...sigh....xoxo~Kathy~


  1. What a gorgeous lamp. I love the beautiful detail on it. Just gorgeous. I can't wait to see it finished. Just lovely. Hugs, Marty

  2. Kathy-this piece is absolutely gorgeous. What kind of paint do you use?


  3. That's funny. It will be just as beautiful painted white.

  4. Kathy, what a knockout lamp! It is going to be fabulous when you are done! I am looking foward to the after photos!


  5. Kathy,

    You seem to always find the potential in everything. I really admire that! And the way you are painting all the gorgeous detail looks fantastic!

    I can't wait to see the finished piece of art!


  6. It's gorgeous! I'm glad you've got more nerve with paint than I do. I need to get some spunk in the paint department.
