We are back with another instalment of Lena Holmstrom’s gypsy creations.
With Tattered Angels DIY paints, some skills and loads of imagination, Lena turned old kitchen utensils into industrial table lamps.
I think I am a little obsessed with making new lamps for our home. At least my hubby says I do… Maybe he’s right. I loved working on this one. The hardest part was dismantling the grinder into pieces but after all the work… Voila: a Coffee Grinder Lamp! – says Lena.
- Paint with Saffron DIY paint. Let it dry thoroughly.
- Add layers of Tan and Saffron.
- When the top layer of paint is still wet, wipe off some parts of it.
- Add some more black and yellow paint with a palette knife.
- Now build your lamp holder.
As you know, I love lamps and altered art. A while ago, I got an old meat grinder from a friend and, believe it or not, this is my second meat grinder lamp.
This meat grinder was dark red so I had to paint it with black gesso. To give this lamp more steampunk feel, I added an extra metal wheel. You will have to bent a tapestry holder so that you can hang the lamp from it. The meat grinder is upside down so it can be used on any table.
What you will need:
Old meat grinder
Old metal wheel
Enjoy your gypsy crafting!!!
