And this one from Layla Grayce! I just couldn't spent $100.00 on a lamp, so I decided to try and make my own version.
First of all, I love the cream chippy paint on these, paired with a crisp clean shade. I knew I needed to find just the right base to start. The one below was found at Walmart for $5.00 on clearance, it wasn't the right color or tall enough, but the price was right and I thought it had a similar shape the expensive ones.
I started by adding a block on the bottom to make it taller, just cut a square of scrap wood we had in the garage and glued in on. (didn't end up using the wood on the finished project) Next, I coated it all with cream paint and added a crackle coat once it dried. Last, I applied my umber and sanded lightly.
Finished it off with a $15.00 burlap shade from Target and whala! My $20.00 lamp is finished!
