Updating a lamp base with paint who is sarah fisher from degrassi dating
Source: Encarta ® World English Dictionary © By Syd Can anyone give me suggestions on how to change the look of my bathroom vanity light without having to call in an electrician? The lighting itself is good because it hangs down near the walls on each side.
It is flush mounted lighting that is not good over a vanity because of the shadows it puts on your face.
Instead of purchasing a new one, I simply covered an existing one with fabric to match the room. Approximate Time Less than 30 minutes It's easy (and cheap) to give new life to a boring ceramic lamp. I used a sponge (cut into a square and rectangle with a utility knife) and a foam stencil brush, some acrylic paint, and some spray gloss.
So I decided to bring a bit of shine into the room by painting the bases with Krylon’s Looking Glass spray paint.
I was hoping for a mercury-glass look (like the mercury glass pumpkin I used it on), but these turned out more of a brushed silver.
You better believe I grabbed these as soon as I realized they were the same lamp, even though they are different colors.
And this is a good tip, because surprisingly I often see the same lamp in different colors at thrift stores: I’m actually in the process of updating our master bedroom by introducing a new color (coral – which I’m loving it right now) and had played with the thought of painting the bases coral, but guess what?
