This Lamp is pretty Bold statement piece even for me who loves playing around with color and pattern. I just did not want to give it a simple lamp makeover and call it a day.
This lamp is for someone who really loves to take risks in design.
Here is how the lamp looked before
Now you guys can understand why I wanted something so different since the Lamp originally was not even worth a second glance, it was very simple, plain and boring.
Materials Needed for this Project
For the lampshade I wanted a very unique pattern.
So for that I grabbed my masking tape and started taping the lampshade in un even square shapes.
And this is what I ended up with.
After that was time to Gold Leafing on the lampshade.
I used Decoupage glue by DecoArt and carefully placed the Gold Leaf all over.
And this was the end result.
When that was all set I carefully peeled off the masking tape.
Next the base of the lamp needed an uplift.
It had to be a Bold color aswell .
And you can’t get more bolder then this beautiful turquoise color.
I chose the color Aqua Waters from DecoArt.
The finish of this paint is a Glossy amazing result which I love but without the hassle of oil based paints since you can use this paint with water.
How amazing is that.
I gave the base of the lamp two coats.
Then when it was dry I taped off the lamp more than half way since I wanted to give it the Gold Dipped look.
I used the Metallic Paint from DecoArt and I chose the 24K Gold.
Look at that liquid gold.
This is where I got my Gold Leaf Inspiration from after looking at this pure liquid gold goodness.
So I gave the base a light coat and this is how it looked after just one layer.
You can build on the color as much as you want. I obviously wanted it to be super GOLD knowing myself so I gave it another coat 😉
When that was done it was just a matter of taking off the masking tape and attaching the lampshade back onto the base.
And that was it.
