Breathing New Life into a Lamp
In our journey of turning the ordinary into the extraordinary, we’re excited to present our latest DIY masterpiece: transforming an everyday lamp into a chic and captivating home decor piece. Armed with Montana Cans and a touch of creativity, we’ll guide you step by step through the process of upcycling a lamp to perfection.
Materials You’ll Need
• Lamp for upcycling
• Montana GOLD spray cans (pick your favorite colors; we chose light blue, dark blue, and muted pink)
• Montana Flatjet cap medium for precise spraying
• Montana VARNISH Spray Gloss for a flawless finish
• Masking Tape
• Drop sheet for paint protection
• Gloves and a Mask for safety
Step 1: Prepare Your Workspace
Set the stage for creativity by laying down a drop sheet to protect your surroundings from paint mist. Put on your gloves and mask for a safe and enjoyable DIY session.
Step 2: Choose Your Palette
Select your desired Montana GOLD spray can colors. We opted for a harmonious blend of light blue and dark blue gradient to infuse elegance into our lamp. Covered with a muted pink, the colorful elements merge into one tasteful piece for your home.
Step 3: Prime and Disassemble
Carefully disassemble your lamp, removing any components that shouldn’t be painted.
Step 4: Reassemble and Mask
Reassemble all parts relevant for the gradient to get a smooth finish. Use masking tape to cover areas you want to keep paint-free. Now, paint the gradient.
Step 5: Spray with Precision
Attach the Montana Flatjet cap medium to your spray can for precise application. Begin spraying your chosen colors onto the lamp’s surface, holding the can about 20-30 cm away for an even coat. Apply multiple thin layers, allowing each to dry before adding the next.
Step 6: Mask, Unmask and Reassemble more
Once the paint is dry, gently apply the masking tape to spray it in a color of your choice. After this layer has dried (you might need a second one) remove the masking tape to reveal crisp lines.
Step 7: Seal the Deal
To protect your masterpiece and add a lustrous finish, seal your painted lamp using Montana VARNISH Spray Gloss. This step will ensure your creation stays vibrant for years to come.
Step 8: Admire Your Artistry
Stand back and admire your stunningly transformed lamp. Its newfound charm will undoubtedly enhance the ambiance of any room.
