Use Coastal Candy to create a stunning Farmhouse inspired set of lamps.
These ugly lamps were free with some second-hand tables I had purchased. I didn’t see any use for them at first glance, but then inspiration struck, why not transform them into something I could use.
This was fast, easy and of course therapeutic. Give me a paintbrush and stress just melts away.
I mixed Coastal Candy into Shabby Paints Garfield Grey until it was the consistency of icing. (Coastal Candy How To)
|4 oz.||1/4 cup|
|8 oz.||1/2 cup|
|16 oz.||1 cup|
I applied by randomly dabbing, brushing and globbing this mixture onto the entire lamp base. Random strokes make for a more authentic finish.
Enhance & Protect
After it was completely dry, I applied Shabby Paints white reVAX with a soft bristle brush to add dimension.
That’s it, that easy! Now I need to hunt down better shades or paint these ?
