1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Functional striped lamp on: July 28, 2005 10:10:40 PM
This is my first post! I made this lamp/ earring holder with acrylic paint, an ikea lampshade, ikea base, and some cheap trim that I bought at Michael Levine in LA.


I made the stripes by using masking tape to tape them off ( I used my eye, no measuring) and covered the lamp in several layers of acrylic paint in brown and darkish  sea green. Then I glued the trim on with some polyurethane varnish. I like using the varnish because I can get really messy on the trim and it will still dry clear with no drips.  It's a good bond, too.  

Overall this project cost me probably $20-25 dollars, including the nice brass lamp base.  Well worth it, I think. Thanks for looking!
