I've been on the search recently for a pair of floor lamps with some visual interest for our living room to add some light and much-needed symmetry to the space. My husband Adam and I had been holding on to many gift cards from stores like Crate and Barrel since our wedding last year, so imagine my happiness when I found a reasonably priced pair from CB2 that could be bought for no money out of pocket!
I opted for the X white floor lamp from CB2, which is currently on sale for $99, but quickly decided that the lamp's all-white appearance just wouldn't do.
Here's the basic change I decided to make to each lamp base:CB2 & Rust-Oleum metallic gold spray paint via Home Depot)
Why spray paint the lamp?
Because, let's be real, is there anything that isn't made better with a touch of gold? I think not.
After a rapid bath of gold, the lamps were ready to be moved back into the living room.
Hallelujah for gift cards and sales, am I right?
