Now What Have I Done to a Lamp?

Umm….if you guys haven’t noticed, I like to upcycle lamps.

Do you want to see my latest one?


It’s going in my girls’ shared bedroom and yes, that is glitter.


Have you guys heard of Krylon’s Glitter Blast spraypaint?

It’s amazing! Literally glitter in a can.

I got my hands on some Posh Pink.

It all started with this $5 find at my local thrift store (Deseret Industries).


I sprayed it just like I would with regular spray paint and dun, dun, dun…


I have to tell you that I was a little nervous to see how this glitter blast would go on. Would it be bumpy and uneven? Would the glitter be flaking off all the time and making a mess?

Well I am happy to tell you that I was pleasantly surprised!

I wish I could show you just how smoothly this stuff went on. Butter, baby…smooth butter.

And I’ve had it set up in my girls’ room for over a month and haven’t had any glitter flake off yet. I’ll probably end up giving it a clear coat finish just to be safe, but so far so good.


Top it off with a fabric-covered lampshade and some fabric rosettes, and this lamp is done.


Now you may be wondering, what room is this?

I haven’t shown you much of this room before. I’ve kind of been redoing 5 different rooms at the same time. I feel like this one is getting close, though.


Should I give you a sneak peek of the stencil?


Recognize the chandelier and mirror? Yeah, those are the only two things I’ve revealed up until now.


I’m really enjoying seeing this room come together, and my girls are loving it which is the most important thing to me.

Stick around and you’ll get to see more of this room unfold.


Speaking of girls and Krylon Glitter Blast spray paint

Are you Utah ladies going to the GNO tonight?


Among other fabulous door prizes, I’ve got 12 cans of this Krylon Glitter Blast spray paint to give away.

I can’t reveal all the prizes, but trust me there are some good ones and you will want to be there for your chance to snatch them up!

Then if you aren’t in Utah…

I’ve got a deal for you as well. You can grab 20% off one item from Quincee’s Boutique by mentioning Sew Dang Cute. Go visit their FB page where they list lots of their stuff, then give them a call 801-692-1417.
