Monday’s Make-it … {Hodge:Podge} Lamp makeover


Check out this GREAT diy from Barbara at Hodge:Podge. Here’s her story - she loved the shape of this lamp’s base but not the color (oh btw … it used to be a copper-like color before). Then after a fun (and ECONOMICAL) trip to the craft store Michaels Barbara bought some Metal Leaf Adhesive to transform her lamp’s base. Barbara added one silver leaf after another silver leaf smoothing it over with a clean paint brush…and voila .. check it out: 

Here’s a peek before the fun leafing: Here’s the fabulocity afterwords (hmm, is ‘fabulocity’ a word?):

Here it is with the lovely white shade. It looks amazing next to the black & white photos:
