Next, I primed using a white Krylon spray paint. I went over the lamp in waves and because it it SO HOToutside (is 105 degrees hot!?! ok, just wondering:) it dried really fast in between coats and I was able to prime the entire thing all at once. I did use the entire can of primer.
Here it is primed and ready for a coat of yellow paint:
I used Krylon ‘Meringue’ in satin and used the same spraying technique…….applying in waves so it’s applied evenly all over. This paint does dry super fast (especially in the AZ heat) so you can follow up with a second coat after waiting about 15-20 minutes. I liked the color but had my heart set on something a little darker (I seem to do this A LOT with my projects lately:)
Soooooo, I went over the pale yellow color with Krylon ‘Bright Idea’………and it was exactly what I had in mind!!
Looks very similar to a table I saw on Tatertots and Jello awhile back and just knew something that color was in my future:)
Here is my finished shade AND lamp:
