Turning an ugly lamp into a beauty

Here is another post to go into my new category, “Fixin’ up the Home Place”.   

Here’s my version of what a beauty is.  My possum trapping son has his own beauty.

I spotted this lamp at goodwill…saw the price $4.50…and had a great picture in my mind of what I could do with it.  It was an ugly thing but it had good shape and potential.  Great things are possible with a can of spray paint. 

Here’s the beast before:
