Oh boy, I have to tell you, my guest is already home with me, her room was finished just in time, but I haven't had the time to edit or take some extra pictures I need, or write about all that was done in it. I've been playing the host part very well, visiting places around town, hiking, swimming, and the week has just started. :)
Reveal time is quickly approaching but in the meantime, I'm going to show you some of the projects that kept me busy these past weeks, and this is one of those.
I really liked the lamp I had in my inspiration board, so I tried to copy cat it ;)
Since I was trying to use everything I had on hand for the guest room makeover, the pair of lamps looked like a nice alternative. First of all, they were cleaned very well.
My inspiration lamp had those nice bumps and that, perhaps, was the feature I loved the most about it. I decided my lamps had to had the bumps at the top of the vase too.
Using Polymer clay remnants my daughter had (and she has a lot of those "trash" pieces), I created the bumps, no exact dimensions or shapes whatsoever. They went into the oven according to the clay instructions...
And as soon as they cooled down they were ready to be attached to the vases with a hot glue gun.
Then, the magic of paint began. The brass parts were spray painted silver and taped off before painting the vase. Two coats of primer were applied.
Followed by two coats of red paint.
The little bumps got dry brushed lightly with white paint.
Finally a switcheroo of shades was done and the lamps were totally transformed! I like the new shades, they were bought at Target long time ago for only $5.99 each. Love the inside pattern on them, and how nice they work with the bright red vases.
I like them! The color, the shades, the bumps, and they go so well in this room!
I'm so glad I didn't get rid of them.
