Milk Painted Lamp

What type of item is this? Home Decor How would you describe the style of your project? Retro / Vintage How would you describe the style of your project? Casual How would you describe the style of your project? Funky What are you most proud of? Another Milk Paint project under my belt! What advice would you give someone starting this project? The little tricks I learned while doing this project. Like leaving the base coat the original colour only to discover after applying the Tricycle Red top coat that when you sand it to reveal the bottom coat, the brown metal sanded down to brass. Yuck! Ended up having to apply the Typewriter Black with bonding agent as my base coat followed by another coat of Tricycle Red top coat and this time it worked!
