I knew when we decided to turn the spare room closet into a crafting and sewing space, that I’d need some additional light in there. I also knew that The Husband would not be excited about having to do electrical work. I wasn’t excited about the prospect either.
While out thrifting, I came across an old ’70s hanging lamp sitting on a shelf. I looked past the brassy chain and fittings, and the gold-tone electric cord, and imagined what I could do with some spray paint and fabric.
Once I got the lamp home and took it apart, I discovered that the clear glass had once been painted green. I was offered a very similar lamp a few months ago (could have even been the same lamp), but turned it down because I assumed that green was the natural color of the glass. I’ll know better in the future.
