As many of you saw in my Living Room Project mood board, I was planning for something like these Westwood Gold Lamps for my new Rast end tables.
But at $318 each, I think Mike would have a seizure. So, here’s how I got the look for MUCH less. Remember these cable knit lamps from HomeGoods?
Well, obviously, I spray painted them.
I had to stray from my go-to which is Krylon’s Gold to Rustolium’s Brass to match the gold foil on the new shades I ordered.
As you can see these new black shades were bigger than the old navy ones
so I had to buy new harps too. The old shades were two inches shorter than the new, so I increased the harp size from 8″ to 10″.
and voila! I put them back together and couldn’t be happier with the final result. And at $170 for both lamps versus the $636 that I would have paid for the Westwood lamps, I think Mike couldn’t be happier either!
