By refashioning this awesome metal leaf lamp I found at goodwill for $2. Its such an interesting shape and I love the bare-bones outline of a lamp coupled with the falling leaves motif. Its clearly an autumn lamp which is why I went with orange and red for the new colors. If you want to see how to funk-ify a lamp of your own, check out how I refashioned mine below!
- Lamp Base
- Lamp Shade
- Spray Paint
- XL Glue Dots
- Mod Podge
Step 1: Place your glue dots around your lampshade. I did staggered rows but you can do any pattern you want!
Step 2: Glitter your dots! Tap off the excess glitter and do it over a sheet of paper or a surface you can easily collect/clean the glitter from.
Just to make sure your glitter stays where its supposed to, add a layer of mod-podge to your dots. Part one done!
Step 3: Give your lamp a new lease on life with a few coats of a bright spray paint.
As with every good refashion, you need a before and after shot.
In my opinion the lamp went from totally drab to fantastically fab and I love it! It fits right in with my geometric glitter pillow, blue corduroy couches, and wall of batman art.
Til Next Time!
