g’morning! The holiday weekend is almost here! I hope you have some fabulous plans! I do! I get to see Jamie this weekend. We will be celebrating Mother’s Day and Jamie’s birthday. How perfect is that!
Twenty eight years ago, (May 29, 1982) I became a mother. Enough about me, on with today’s post.
Do you remember my $5.00 lamp I bought last week?
I gutted it, and used some cheap primer on it.
Then came the handy dandy always perfect Rustoleum Heirloom White.
Time for some glaze. I usually use stain, but on this metal lamp, stain just didn’t seem to be in order. I decided to use my burnt umber paint, watered down of course.
I bought some gloves at the dollar tree just for such projects, but I forgot to use them. My fingernails are still stained!
I really love the way it turned out!
I will tell you that I need to do something else for the top (to hold a candle). But I was so anxious to show you that I just sat the candle right on the top. I tried to think of what I could use, and really couldn’t come up with anything. I do have some little glass sort of ashtray things I used for my candlesticks and more.
If this were a little taller, I could make another DIY birdbath.
