The sun stays late for us in the summer, but a lamp can add a beautiful glow to your bedside table, living room, kitchen or dining room. This weekend my husband and I headed in to town on errands and picked up a new bulb for my reading lamp, did you know you can now buy “antique” bulbs? They cast a glow more like the lights that were made 75 or more years ago.
The lamps pictured above are from Irvin’s Country Tinware, a national company that uses Old Village Paint on many of their lamps! Aren’t they beautiful! We are so proud! They use our regular paint and some of our Goopy paint. (If you don’t know about our Goopy paint, learn about it here.)
Think you might want to transform one of your own lamps into an early American masterpiece with a new coat of paint and a new bulb? Hopefully the photos above have provided you with some inspiration. We’d love to see what you come up with! Feel free to share with us here on the blog, or over on Facebook, look us up under “Old Village Paints”!
