Thrift Store Lamp Makeover using gift wrap and spray paint

 

I love to take something that no longer looks stylish and make it new again.

This thrift store lamp makeover was perfect!

AND lamps are expensive…have you priced them lately?

I found this beauty a few years ago for about $5…She looked like this…

ALL she needed was a little love and a few supplies.

Gold Spray Paint

Mod Podge

Wrapping Paper of choice

So I used one of my favorite kinds of paint for this thrift store lamp makeover…Spray Paint!  Krylon Metallic Brilliant Gold was the perfect shade of gold for this project.  It went on perfectly and covered directly over the ceramic lamp without primer.

AND with some gift wrap and Mod Podge I already had at home…

She was ready to shine again, in more ways than one :)

Since the gift wrap had stripes it was super easy to cut to size.

FYI…make sure you don’t use flimsy gift wrap paper, it works better with the glue if it is thick.

I painted the glue on in small sections so that I wouldn’t accidentally stick down too much of the gift wrap.

This allows me the ability to press out any bumps that may pop up as I stick the paper to the glue.

This thrift store lamp makeover turned out WAY better than I had imagined and my daughter LOVES it in here newly decorated room.  Here is another thrift store lamp idea for you, just click HERE.

    I love it Sonya!! You did such a fab job with the mod Podge. I always get bubbles. I will have to try your trick next time and work in small areas. I think I always use too much too… Thinking more is better. Guess it is not in this case! Your lamp looks perfect, quite the transformation.

    What an awesome project. I really love what you have done and I am going to be needing to redo some lamps soon. I look forward to trying out your method!

    LOvE this!!! What a transformation. I have an old lamp base I’ve been wanting to do something with. This is very inspiring! Stopping by from the Throwback Thursday blog hop!

    This lamp looks great in your daughter’s room. I probably would have passed it by in a thrift store. Now I know to think about how an ugly lamp could be changed.

    Thanks for sharing with Throwback Thursday.

    You did a great job on this lamp! I just wish more “regular” (read: NON crafty people) could see the beauty in used stuff like we do. Then again, there wouldn’t be anything left for us, now, would there? LOL

    I really love your lamp makeover!! I especially like the gold paint color you used. I have been trying to decide on a gold spray paint to use for one of my lamps I want to makeover but wasn’t sure which to use. This one was one of the two options so now I think I’m gonna give it a try!

    Sonya, this is an unbelievable lamp makeover!!! Never in a million years would I have thought you used wrapping paper. Super inspiring!!! Pinning.

    Love the lamp! Thank you for bringing it back! I have tried the Mod Podge on good quality wrap. I get the bubbles when I put on the top layers to seal. Did you seal this? Any tips if you don’t get bubbling?
