Navy Blue being added to the den

The Den Re-decorate is still in progress.

I wanted to add a navy lamp shade.  The only one I could find was at Bed, Bath and Beyond.  Hated the base, but the price was right.  The white inside of the shade made the light too bright and washed out the navy color. 

So, metalic gold Rustoleum to the rescue.  I have more plans for that little can of spray paint too.

I had this old candlestick type lamp base in the attic.  It was a bit chipped, the spray paint covered nicely.  I taped off the shade.  It needed two coats of paint.  

It adds just the right amount of gold to that part of the room.  I even turned some books around to show off their gold tinted pages.  

I think I just might spray paint the base of an end table with the metallic gold paint.  Hmmm.....
