DIY Bowling Pin Lamp Update

Yeah, you read that right! I found a bowling pin lamp in my vintage travels and decided to give it an update. Now, I realize the likelihood of you running across another bowling pin lamp are pretty slim, but you could use this color/texture combo on tons of decor!

Here's what it looked like before and after (without shade):

What I used:
- paint
- paint brush
- gold vinyl
- scissors

It's pretty simple. I painted the lamp a flat light grey to really contrast against the gold. I then cut little gold pieces out of the vinyl and applied them.

Just add shade and DONE!

This little guy is now on sale in my booth at Curiosities Vintage Mall.
