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.

    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".

      My husband would say, "don't stay in place too long or you're likely to get moved!" ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thanks Rea, I like the small neck on the vase so I don't have to fill it with so many branches- just a few works!
