    That looks SO good. What a transformation! How much do you think it all cost? Obviously you can reuse the majority of items on other projects, but I’d be interested to hear how much you saved (or not!)

      That’s a great question! I spent $1 on the spray paint, and each of the waxes were about $10 for an 8oz. jar, and I covered a lamp I already owned. So total spent for both lamps was $21! Also like you said, there was plenty left over in each jar of wax for me to use them many more times!

      If you try it out Jaclyn I would love to see the results! It was way easier than I thought it would be to make them! 🙂

    This is beautiful! My husband’s family recently gave me the go ahead to decorate one room in the home. It needs a TON of work. This would be the perfect project for it.

    I just tried this and I’m obsessed! I can’t wait for them to dry. Now to find the perfect shades for them. Thank you so much for the inspiration!

    Hi, I did this technique on some lamps and I believe I over did it with the white wax… it’s startibg to look a light brown everywhere and no depth. Did you just put white here and there? Is that where I went wrong? Also, can I just add brown to some places and 24 hours later add a bit of white again? Let me know

      Hi Kate!

      Make sure when you are doing the white that you are dry brushing it on. Meaning you will want to barely have any of the white wax on your brush when you go to brush it on the lamp. I would try dry brushing some of the brown wax back over the white wax and see if that helps. Then when that dries if you feel like it needs a little more white go back in and dry brush a bit more white back on. Hope this helps! 🙂

    You remind me so much of me! I refuse to spend money on something I can DIY and most of the time it turns out just as good if not better. Great job on this lamp!
