A lamp that is past it’s prime or picked up at the thrift shop can easily be transformed. With just a few supplies and a little bit of time you can take a lamp from trash to treasure.
Upgrading a lamp is one of the cheapest projects you can do to change up your decor. With springtime here, I was eager to lighten and brighten our living space.
Easy Lamp Revamp
The KRYLON paint was great for this job. You do light coats of paint and they dry fast… it says 10 minutes on the can and I think that’s right.
I taped the heck out of the light fixture part and the cord so I wouldn’t accidentally paint them. It’s always a challenge for me!
Let the lamp dry. Using jewelry wire cutters, cut the straight pins in half.
Then carefully print and cut the butterflies out. The colors of the butterflies are so bright and vibrant.
So just sort of stick them where you like them with the straight pins.
That’s all there is to it. You can gently bend the wings up to give them dimension.
