It’s another edition of finding current decoration in your home and giving them a farmhouse-lift.

Changing your old decor to fit your new decorating look is the most inexpensive way to redecorate your house.  In this edition today I am actually using the same products I used in Edition 1.

My favorite round brush

This Petticoat Color Milk Paint.

Plus I added a gray craft paint I already had on hand.

Here is the lamp that needed a farmhouse-life.  I had already changed the lamp shade from its existing one but I still felt it needed a little more changing.

I grabbed my favorite round brush and milk paint and got started by painting the lamp base.  I honestly didn’t worry about getting a thick coat because I liked the way the dark base peaked out of the milk paint.  I did two light coats and allowed it to dry.  

I still felt it looked a little too “white” so I grabbed a small dab of gray craft paint and dry brushed it onto the lamp very lightly.

Here is the finished product.  From old decor to new decor in about an hour.

Nothing makes me happier then using items we already have around our home and giving them a farmhouse-lift to fit our current decorating style.  As you can see in the photo, the lamp is sitting on top of the box that I painted in Edition 1.  Double win for farmhouse-lifts!!

What items do you have around your house that need a farmhouse-lift?
