I'm happy to be writing this post from an office that is a little more well lit today than it was yesterday, thanks to my adorable new lamp!
He reminds me of the Pixar lamp, whose name I learned thanks to Google, is Luxo. He's a dashing fella, don't you think?
So I gave in and broke out the spray paint.
Rustoleum Gold Metallic Spray Paint, which I had on hand, for this project. It took about 4 coats to get the nice even coverage I was going for, and it really does look like metal.
vintage looking light bulb from the Home Depot.
It's fairly light, so it only took a couple screws to affix to the wall, and boom! New task lighting for my office.
Some day I'll spring for an electrician to put overhead lighting in this room, but until that day comes, Luxo can help me out during early morning and late night prep sessions at my desk.
