Ohhhhh how we love a quick, cheap project!
What do you get when you mix an outdated brass floor lamp and a bottle of XO Rust spray paint? An awesome-up-to-date floor lamp that can live in any room!
The floor lamp was a hand-me-down from Joey’s Amazing Aunt who gifted us all sorts of goodies this past Fourth-O-July! This piece we all collectively cringed at, but I had plans for this dated wonder.
True Value told us about XO Rust, and we were so excited to try it out. We have a bunch of updates we can’t wait to slap this paint on, but first we needed to fix our sad little floor lamp before we battled the elements outside to spruce up the outdoor light covers, which look a little drab.
This project is super simple:
Any metal, rusty, brass, or brassy item you want to give a facelift to.
A bottle or two of XO Rust indoor/outdoor spray.
- That’s it! The paint has a “built-in” primer – so you are good to go.
Step away from you object! Only a couple feet, and with soft strokes about two feet in length(depending on what you are spray painting, I am using the floor lamp as an example) – spray back and forth! That’s it. It was so over the top easy to transform this trash to treasure – I am for sure, newly addicted to this stuff. I will be hitting the junk markets soon – in search of rusty treasures to restore!
