Bonjour from Campagne Maison
I recently purchased two of these gorgeous yellow Ginger jar lamps at a local thrift store for $4.00 each. Seriously, I really hated to paint them as they were in excellent condition! But I had an "itch" and I had to scratch it!
One shade was still wearing a condom (as HGTV's Doug Wilson would say) but a quick removal of the entire ORANGE (well I am in TN where everyone bleeds UT Orange) shade material gave way to artistic liberties.
A little tweekin' with a flourish of baubles and beads, a coat of white paint, a glaze mixture of metallic silver and gold applied over an Elmer's glue crackle medium, topped off with a shade recovered with brown Zebra print turned
this Ugly Duckling
into a Beautiful Swan..
The most difficult thing about this REfurbish project was finding the brown Zebra print material--thank goodness for Hobby Lobby!!
Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit. We love having company!
