I have been on the lookout for the perfect shaped thrift store brass lamp. They look exactly like the popular wood spindle lamps you are seeing in the stores these days.

I found a lamp that was relatively new. I am so leary of old lamps with bad wiring. Who wants to burn the house down, right? I try to find ones with relatively new hardware. It is just easier not to have to rewire the lamp unless it is one that I can’t live without.

I painted this beauty with acrylic paint.  I used a dry brush technique to get the faux wood grain pattern. Let me show you how easy it is to do!
