Easy DIY // Dipped Lamp & Vase

An easy DIY project is my kind of project!  I can handle a can of spray paint! I'm working on creating a desk nook in my son's room and needed a desk lamp, so, instead of purchasing a new one, I repurposed one I'm not currently using by giving it a fun "dipped" navy blue edge.  My lamp is from Z Gallerie, but I don't see it on their website anymore. 


I only wanted to paint the rim of the base and lamp head, so I taped and covered everything else (including where the light bulb goes).  A couple coats of spray paint is all it took and the paint dries quickly. I used a Krylon glossy paint that leaves a shiny finish.




And since I had the spray paint out, I added a gold edge to a World Market Barcelona vase and sprayed the bottom of the branches.


It's just a small detail that adds a little something extra.




Hope you're having a great week!

  1. Love what a little spray paint can do! Hubby always tells everyone, "don't stay in one place too long or your are likely to get sprayed at our house too".
