Modern Gustavian inspired Lamp with potential paint finish tester.JPG



So my new thing is modern Gustavian inspired minis.. so I made myself a lamp... :D

The turning beside it is a tester paint job I did to see if I could get a good aged grey wood colour that you see so much of in this style. I like it.. might need a little bit of white stippled on for highlighting.

I drilled a hole in a houseworks turning for the base & The structure to hold the lamp up is a nylon washer and two clear plastic fastener backs.

The shade is printed linen over cardstock. The print is much softer in real life.. not sure why so dark here... I think I need to adjust the fabric too.. because I see that my laurel wreath is wonky.. lol

Oh, Samantha.  We all see issues with our items that no one else notices.  :-)  Also, I know what you mean about things looking better in real life.  Sometimes I take a picture of something, and it's so frustrating, because it doesn't show what I see just looking at it.  So I believe that your lamp is even more beautiful in person.

The perfectionist in me want's perfect but I do really love this lamp despite it's imperfections.... I'm telling myself it adds to the charm. :rolleyes:
