Rooster lamp! {French Country home decor}

This guy was in need of a pick me up!  I love my roos, and I adore French Country decorating.
My rooster lamp, that I adore, and have had for sometime now, was crying in the corner, he wanted paint too.

In fact, very soon, this entire corner is having a makeover..thanks to my will see why very soon.

I used antique white, paint and primer all in one by Glidden.  I was very happy with it.

Worked out beautifully! Lightly distressed..

aww Heck give em a new lampshade too.
Burlap one shall return someday, but I could not resist this one for 9.97 at Walmart, {bhg line}

Lots of fun changes around here to come!
and simply amazing!

{Can't wait to reveal this something  special}
While one roo was getting a makeover, my brush accidental slipped to another...
and white No less...

Oh boy, this girl is crazy with a paint brush in her hands!
Have a great day!
Thanks for popping over and saying hello, always kindly appreciated.

To funny, I saw that lampshade at Walmart today and almost picked it up.
I think you are certainly dangerous with a paint brush. LOL Do you dream about painting things in your sleep? I think the white is a great pop of color against the darker walls.
Great choice, and I can't wait to see what's next.

Hi Debbie, Mr. ROO... Looks Like a Brand New Man!!! Love the Gingham Ribbon it adds that Extra Special Touch... Can't wait to see what the rest of the Corner is going to look like...

Your roo turned out stunning in white, Debbie! Love that lamp shade! I keep saying I will get to Walmart and get one for myself. I think it's great that you just updated something you've had and loved with paint. I did the same yesterday. Such an inexpensive way to update something and get a brand new look at the same time!
