Decorated Ceramic Lamp

It's easy (and cheap) to give new life to a boring ceramic lamp.

I purchased the ceramic lamp on sale for $4.99. I used a sponge (cut into a square and rectangle with a utility knife) and a foam stencil brush, some acrylic paint, and some spray gloss.


Dip the sponge stencil and foam brush in the acrylic paint to make a simple design. When dry, spray with a light coat of gloss.

Very creative idea. Every time I go into Goodwill I see lots of lamps, just waiting for a designer's sponge or brush.
