Take two old rusty lamps
I have been having a clear out in my cellar recently and I came across these two old rusty lamps which I thought had great potential for a revamp. I started by rubbing over them with course wire wool to remove any loose rust before applying a special paint for metal which acts as a primer and undercoat.
This was left to dry overnight to ensure that it adhered sufficiently to the metal. Though I have a confession to make, they were then left unattended for over a week due to other commitments, before adding a coat of Fired Earth "Verd-Antique" in a matt finish. I will have to give them a second coat of "Verd-Antique" for a more polished finish but I am sure you will agree a little time spent on these lamps has brought them back to life. They will look great lit up at night for a summer evening barbeque.
