My first step was to wrap the cord, metal rod and the neck of the lamp in aluminum foil. I shared this painting tip on my Updated Fan post and was surprised how many people loved this idea! Friends, it’s so much easier than painters tape. Painter’s tape is perfect on walls and is great when you need crisp clean lines. However, for projects like this with circular shapes, foil is the way to go.
After covering with foil, I gave the lamp a nice even coat of my favorite spray paint, this Flat White spray paint. I adore it’s dull matte look.
I also painted the handle and switch in gold… because gold!
