How-to: Bold Hobnail Lamp
The DIY experts at HGTV Magazine recreated this flea market find. Here’s how you can, too.
- painter's tape
- spray paint + primer combo
- new patterned lampshade
Discard the old shade.
Tape off the lamp’s cord and bulb socket with painter’s tape. Spray-paint the lamp base—we used a spray-paint-and-primer-in-one, which adheres to glass surfaces. Let dry.
Add a patterned shade that complements the color of the base.
