The WordPress Photo Challenge https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/repurpose/ this week asks us to think about repurpose.
So, the stars of my post are these two lamps.
They began life as two rather plain, dusty pink bedside lamps. They did their job, but with no frills or bows.
Sadly, they were so boring I have no before pictures to show you.
Using wrapping paper and photocopies of some of my artwork I set about covering the shades (decoupage). Finally, I sealed them with a specialist glue, which also acts as a hard-wearing varnish. I save up pieces of ribbon and three pieces became bows for one of the shades. There was a hairline crack to the base of the other lamp and this section was decorated to match the shade. They don’t have to be perfect… a bit like me!
These two lamps have now got new personalities and my inner child got to play for a few hours!
I look forward to seeing all the other posts using this prompt.( Click on the above link.)
Thanks for dropping by.
