Today I am transforming a tired old lamp using Dixie Belle Paints. Join me in this quick tutorial and learn how you can give new life to an out dated old lamp.
I began with a very beautiful lamp. It was actually one of my favorite pieces when my house was decorated in the Old World Tuscan look. I unfortunately, forgot to click a quick pic before I started painting. The lamp was originally dark, gold guilded and very old Mediterranean style. It holds a special place for me so when it no longer matched my current design trend I thought let's just make it fit as I just could not stand parting with it. So, here you see it with the base coat of Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in Gulf, still very pretty, but not quite what I was after as it was a little vibrant for what I was going for.
I then added a coat of Grunge Glaze. I painted it on using these great chip brushes and wiped away the excess with paper towel. I cannot even tell you the difference the Grunge Glaze made...no need to clear coat, wait, what? Skip a step? Yes, that is what I said. If you desire the added protection of a clear coat, however, then please use this satin clear coat sealer. You will not be sorry.
I am so very pleased with this Dixie Belle redo.
I can't wait to get my hands on the next one!
Thanks for stopping by!
