How to Quickly Update An Old Lamp

How to Quickly Update an Old Lamp - Delicious And DIYThis was certainly a quick little makeover hence the title 😉 but no joke I was done with this project in under fifteen minutes.

Starting off I’ve had this lamp for almost five years now and it was just a basic little lamp.

I actually really liked how it was originally which is why I never thought of giving it a makeover.

But since the room in which we had this lamp had the Storage Cabinet so I wanted this lamp to go with its theme.

Here is the before

It needed two to three light coats to fully cover it.

When that was done I went in with my Liquid Gold Gilding and painted over the already existing design.

I painted the rectangular ones Turquoise and the other shape in this Light Baby Pink color.

When the wood chips were dry it was just a matter of gluing each individually onto the lamp shade.

I just experimented with the placement which was basically two strips rectangular and in the middle I placed the petal shapes.

And that was it .

Gave it a full day for it to dry.

And now we have a beautiful lamp makeover done within minutes.
