There never seems to be enough hours in the day!
Especially to paint!
I found this old metal lamp at a thrift store
I decided that it would be the perfect surface to paint a design
I cleaned and base coated the lamp
the base is about 14" wide
I used a design called
QUALITY TIME SAM
I have also painted this design a few thymes on milk cans
I painted the TOP like a folded flag
painting the stars
I painted saltboxes on the back
close up of the back of lamp
I added several coats of clear matte varnish when finished to protect the surface
With a shade on top the lamp measures about 30" tall.
I used designs from John Slineys books
A Road to America's Past
A Road to Saltbox Memories
to paint this lamp
