Turning Grandma’s, too old, ugly and outdated lamp into something that brightens your flower beds. With just a few steps this is an easy, fast, and make your yard pretty, kind of craft. The kids can even help from picking the colors to helping you paint.

You Will Need…

  • Thrift Store Lamp
  • Dollar store bowl
  • Spray Paint color, Primer, and clear coat.
  • Industrial Strength Glue
  • Pliers
  • May need wrench for bolts


Step 1: Disassemble Lamp. Removing Hardware and Wire.

Step 2: Primer the Lamp and Bowl. You don’t have to paint anything. If you’re going to keep the natural look, move to step 4.

Step 3: Paint with any colors you want and let dry completely. Antique if you chose. I also chose to drill holes in the bowl, to prevent mosquito habitat and yucky water.

Step 4: Glue your bowl on the lamp. Use an  industrial strength glue.

Step 5: Spray paint with a clear coat … something to seal in your work.
