At Creative Dominican, Becca has been working on a master bedroom makeover. Not wanting to spend a ton of money for the kind of lamps she wanted, Becca was thrilled to find these substantial brass lamps at her local Goodwill.
A mercury effect was the look Becca was going for when she gave these lamps a makeover. ”I sprayed the lamps lightly with water, then sprayed on the Krylon Glass,” she explains. That created a silvery bubble-like effect, similar to mercury glass. Becca completed the faux mercury effect by dabbing on a little black craft paint for added dimension. Each lamp was topped with a burlap “bubble” lampshade, to achieve just the look Becca wanted for her master bedroom. A very unique set of lamps!
