If you have an old lamp and want to know how to renovate it, then this tutorial from aprudentlife.com is for you! Let’s get started. Before painting, remove the shade and tape off the electrical parts of the lamp. Paint the base and cover it with a clear lacquer spray to make it shine. Next find a new lampshade – you can make it yourself or buy somewhere. Make sure that the screws at the tops of lamps are the same size and the shade will fit. Finish assembling the lamp and decorate any of your spaces with it! You are done!
