Kitschy Kamp Lamp upcycle with DecoArt

 I love garage sales! 
No not having them,buying from them!teehee One can find the cutest or most clever pieces to upcycle at these!! 
 This intro leads me to my share for today! 
My kitschy kamp lamp ! 

Here's how it goes...
We found this lamp at a sale and my husband said we had to have it for camping-not as it is I said! 
  Above, the lampshade gets its first coat of gesso to cover the outdated sunflower pattern.
 My base weapons of choice are DecoArt Chalky Finish in both Refreshing & Treasure.
One coat of Refreshing on the main body and Treasure on the rims.
 One coat is all was needed to cover up the previous pattern.
Next up, I printed, clipped and adhered kampy type pictures around the body of the lampshade,using DecoPage in Matte by DecoArt(I love this product)
Next came stenciling in shades of Inheritance, Ancestral and Rouge,again,Chalky Finish by DecoArt.
I stenciled in between the pictures, blending my colors to give a cohesiveness with the pictures.
Stencils used are from Stencilgirl-
 
  And the finished lamp!
 My husband insisted the base needed nothing more...















and I agree-kinda kitschy cute the way it is!!


Thanks for joining me again today  and I sure hope I have inspired you to shop the garage sales! Go Green and upcycle with DecoArt!

Oh MY! you have turned this into a classic beauty.
A brilliant transformation and new life dear Jackie!!!
Happy Weekend to you and yours.
We are enjoying having our son home for a visit after all these years of him being in CO.
It makes me wonder how bloggers with "young" children can manage it all. Here he is an adult child and well you know...lots of extra wonderful excitement here.
I am sneaking in a few minutes trying to play catch up.

I really love the vintage look of this lamp, Jackie. It goes so well with that mustard-jar base - brilliant! I also like the stencils, which work so very well with the images. xxx

Very clever. I never do things like that - I have enough stuff in my house already which most people my age do but A friend of mine often does ' fixer uppers like this. Maybe one day I will try too!.

It's great what you made of this Jackie! I just love recycling old things and making them more to my liking. It's addictive really. This is such a fun way to recycle that lamp. Love your creative ideas!
