Industrial Lamp

I am painting and waxing away on my son’s room.  I hope to get it to a point where he can sleep in in tonight.  The labor is never as fun for me as the decorating.  I am excited to see if our industrial/vintage idea comes together.  I did get a lamp finished and ready for the room.  I love it. 


I just stuck it in the front room for right now to get a shot of it. 

I had on old bronze candlestick lamp that I painted with my Krylon aluminum paint and black glaze. 


I ordered my bulbs and a light cage at and it was a bronze color in the photo, but a yellow one arrived.  It is coated in a yellow rubber type material.


The color really didn’t matter because I needed to paint it anyway.




We also got the new ceiling fan installed.  I had to paint the pulls because they came in light brown which looked weird with the silver ceiling fan.


It looks better, but I am not a fan of compact fluorescent light bulbs and that is what is used in this fan.


Here’s the before fan.

I have most of the furniture painted and waxed.  I thought I disliked painting.  I think I dislike waxing more. 


I do like painting with the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  It is fast and easy. 

Better go and get to it.  Lots to do before his bedtime tonight.
