My first paint project of 2015 and a new find!

 Hi there friends...
I worked on my first paint project for the year...I also scored on my first trip to my favorite antique store! 
~~~
I always loved the look of a French Bouillotte candlestick lamp so when I spotted this one sitting way back in a corner in the antique store my heart started to race!! 
The owner told me he just got it from a recent auction he went to.
The shade needs to be replaced...I already ordered a new one on ebay ;-) other then that this lamp is in perfect condition.  
The base is quite heavy.

I have it in our front sitting room on the newly redone table that belonged to my grandparents.
I moved my husbands recliner in here when I bought the sectional for our family room.
This is the room my husband and son like to sit in to watch sports...so I decorated it with things he's collected over the years...more to come on that later.

This was how the table looked when I had it in our living room before I replaced it with the antique pie table...
I decided to paint it black to go with another chest that I have in here. 
I tried out the chalk paint from Home Depot called Americana in Carbon. I was very happy with the way it went on and would definitely use it again.
 I love seeing all the different layers come through.



One last shot at dusk...
I love the cozy feel this room has!

~~~
I can't wait to show you what else I came home with that day...here's a peek ;-)
Have a great week!

Martina,
Great looking lamp and your little table makeover looks great too. I have also used this paint and did you know that you can buy it at Michaels? I buy it there so I can use a 40% coupon.

Blessings,
Linda

Very cozy looking, indeed, Martina! I love that table in black. I will have to look for that paint at Home Depot. I like to have colors like black and white in chalk paint on hand for spur of the moment projects.

Great find on the lamp. It looks great on the table, too!

Great new score, and brass is in for 2015. Good to know about HD Calk Paint :) Your room looks great Martina.

Something Nice and Pretty said...

I use that paint Martina, I have the blue and black and I'm using the black right now on a project that is taking longer to paint because of the cold. It's 19 here and I woke up to a couple inches of snow:)
Love your new lamp and I think that peek looks like a new mirror! Have a great day!

Michele said...

Very cool, love the table and the fact that you did a room for the men in your life. Very loving!

Such a pretty lamp with a beautifully classic look...perfect in your lovely room. I just bought a little pot of that paint, too. Looking forward to testing it out. Also curious about your sneak peek! Jane

Ron said...

I adore that style of lamp.

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

Martina, I love the color you painted your table, and I didn't know that Home Depot carried a line of chalk paint. The lamp is the perfect accent on your table, and I love that comfy looking throw on your ottoman!

What a wonderful lamp! I didn't know you could get Chalk paint at Home Depot! It is less expensive than Annie Sloan? The table turned out great.
