From Girly To Gothic

DSCN4762It’s never to early to start thinking about Halloween. I betcha you though I was going to say Christmas? In this household, Halloween is a major holiday. No, we’re not into devil worship or anything like that; we just like pumpkins, ghost, goblins and things that go bump in the night. So I decided to start our Halloween repurpose projects early. With this project she took a girly-girl bedroom lamp with a old “yellowed” shade and restored it into a work of art. Using a hammer black finish on the lamp, gives it a more modern look without hiding the beauty of the rose pattern on lamp body. The we lightly painted the shade a flat black to give the lamp a gothic but girly look.
