One of our retro children was insulted. And we had to do something about it so its self esteem would not suffer.
The lamp above, with its peeling paint stripes and weird brown color, was referred to as “that ugly brown lamp.”
Well, Ugly Brown Lamp, we’ll show the world how beautiful you can be!
Mr. Vibe upcycled Ugly Brown Lamp with 2 coats of metallic automotive paint and 2 coats of clear. He also sanded and oiled the wood and rewired the lamp. With the lighter wood and lighter shade, he was hoping to draw the eye to the sparkle of our Pretty Blue Lamp.
Ugly Brown Lamp says, “Look at me now!”
