Spray Paint These Thrift Store Finds
There are all kinds of decor to hang on the wall at the thrift store. Most of it has an old outdated finish and just needs to be modernized.
Mirrors are perfect for spray painting. A lot of the old mirrors at the thrift stores have that dark aged look to them and no one wants that. See a mirror I spray painted metallic here..Best Rustoleum Metallic Spray Paint Colors For Home Decor

You can always find lamps at the thrift store or if you are like me the lamps you have are out of date and can use a coat of paint.
Hey, this brass lamp makeover is super easy! Spray paint is all you need for the base then add a thrift store lamp shade.
I purchased this lamp for $4.95. I decided to paint it a pretty blue and change out the lamp in the “granddaughters” bedroom. All I did to prep the lamp was cover the top of the bulb socket with painters tape and wrap the cord in a plastic bag.
Then I sprayed on two coats of blue paint. The lamp base was painted and the paint dry in under an hour.
I also found the lamp shade at the thrift store for $1.95. I purchased the shade a few months ago. I bought it because of the price and I knew I would eventually use it. At first I thought it was a Pottery Barn lamp shade but after a little goggling I discovered it’s from Ikea. I love the embroidery and the colors.
I think of the rooster light as a nightlight. The bulb is too small to put out much light. The photo above with the blue paint is how I found the light. You can find the makeover here.....4 Farmhouse Style Chicken Decor Projects | Something To Cluck About
