It's been on my to-do list to add some modern touches to our kitchen.
I love the look of a lamp on the counter, and the ambiance it gives in the evening
after every thing is all cleaned up, ahhh. I've been smitten with the bold graphic pattern on
Mary McDonald's Santorini lamp forever.
I used a $10 lamp I scored at Goodwill to create a
less than perfect similar version. :)
This Mary McDonald Santorini lamp was my inspiration.
I found these lamps at Goodwill back in May, the square base was perfect for this diy.
I spray painted a base coat using Rustoleum Ultra Cover in White,
then marked the center of the lamp as my starting point to begin taping.
I taped off my
far from perfect pattern...
(I noticed it needs a bit of tweaking after removing the tape)
using the 3M tape I won in my diy goodie package, from the all-time nicest,
Linda @ Calling it Home. Thank you, sweet friend! :)
Then sprayed it with Rustoleum Ultra Cover in Black Gloss.
I printed out a favorite quote on my computer, after seeing this inspiration :) and put it in
a frame I'd spruced up with gold corners, over a year ago. Aka, Courtney's genius idea!
I like that my teenager can't help but see it everyday!
I have a few more elements to add, but this easy, inexpensive diy gives this
little corner a fresh update.
