You may remember that a while ago, one of my lamp makeover projects was a 1980's light pink glass lamp. After I finished with it, it was a fun white lamp with a white linen lamp shade.
Well, after ruining the “world’s ugliest lamp” makeover project last week, which was meant to be the draw prize for those of you who joined rouge’s new facebook page, I found another one just like it!
So...I gave it a good cleaning, gently gave it a good going over with light sandpaper to remove any finish on the lamp, and cleaned it again.
Then, I covered the fixture part of the lamp as well as the cord with paper bags and tape.
Finally, I gave it a couple of coats of glossy “true blue” paint to ensure a smooth and brilliant finish.
Add on a square-ish linen lamp shape and voila...a great looking lamp that will add a big pop of color to any decor.
And it’s one of a kind. Not perfect, but not like any other lamp in the world. Definitely unique.
Now... to give it away.

A barely controllable urge to organize, move furniture around and paint walls, along with a healthy addiction to HGTV is something my family and friends can attest to.
After running out of rooms to design in my own home, I moved on to my friend’s spaces and design challenges to feed my passion. Finally, I decided it was time to make it official and began a staging and design program.
Earning my accreditation in early 2009, I started "rouge." -- a small side-business offering staging & design services.
