Red Rover Red Rover Send Some Paint Right Over


 I found these pictures on my old phone and thought I would share...



This little fellow was at one of my favorite thrift stores....looks a little sad doesn't he? 
And he's just so...RED.



Even the brass base was covered in red.



I scraped and scrubbed and shined him up a little and...



Painted him yellow.
Now isn't that so much better??!!



Topped off with a lamp shade from Homegoods, you can only see the dent from the side so don't look too closely.
He has moved into Locke's room and is very happy, as am I.

  1. Ha. Of course, the yellow looks amazing!! And what a job that must have been getting the red paint off that brass base. Yikes. I'm actually surprised you even looked at the red lamp to begin with - that must have taken a lot of strength to see past the devil color! Hee hee.
