I wanted a crystal and "something" lamp for my baby's room in the worst way but was not going to pay a few hundred $ for it. I had an old brass desk lamp that I was going to toss into the Goodwill pile but thought "let me try and see how this could come out." If it did not work out, I am really not losing any money!
I took the old brass lamp and stuffed a piece of paper towel in the bulb area so I would not get any paint in there.
I took a damp paper towel and wiped down the lamp base to remove any dust or dirt.
After 3 coats of Krylon glossy white spray paint...
I bought a bunch of mixed blooms from Old Time Pottery...
…and popped of their heads and trimmed down to the base of the flower.
Armed with my hot glue gun, I started gluing the blooms to the lampshade. If you are not a patient person, this is not the project for you! The lampshade took me several days to complete...
This is the final product and I could not be happier!
I wired 6 strands of clear crystal together to hang from the lampshade.
3 strands straight down and then 3 linking each strand together.
I used a 15 watt bulb so if I needed to have the light on for a while, the glue holding the flowers on would not melt.
