Sometimes it is so hard to see beyond what is right in front of us. Last year, when Zellers was closing, I took a walk through to have one final look at the things they had marked down. I saw these lamps and immediately thought, “gee they are ugly”. But the more I looked them over, the more I realized I was just reacting to their colour. Who wants “bird poop green” lamps. The colour looks better in this picture than it truly was. As I admired the wire shape the “spray painting side of my brain” took over and started to rationalize they were worth it.
They were 50% off the sale ticket price.
So I took out a can of my favourite spray paint colour – Rustoleum Heirloom White. I just bought a 6 pack! No, I’m not even kidding…
Two good coats of spray paint and a lovely burlap shade from Home Sense. Take THAT bird poop green…that’ll fix ya!
