What a great idea. Now I just need to pry Stu away from his Xbox and into Ikea, which is having its summer sale right now, so why I haven’t already been, I don’t know. Working at the Ikea in Pittsburgh for nearly 2 years hasn’t managed to put me off of them and their flat packed goodness, especially for home accessories. Things like: flower boxes for my railing (no balcony, just railing), super cheap fabric for projects, and plastic bird lights. All for just a few quid. Hurrah! Consumerism is alive and well in this American girl…
Decoupage a Grono
Ingalill spent half an hour pimping this lamp. She found the picture and printed it, découpage it on and finished with a coat of varnish.
Have a Grono pARTy
Jen of Painted Fish Studio threw a pARTy, where her friends gather at her house and make an art/craft project. The object in the limelight was the Grono and at the end of the evening, out came a delightful array of Grono lamps, pimped to perfection.
Paper is used as the main decorative element, stuck onto the lamp with gel matte medium – which takes longer to dry but more forgiving when it comes to placement than glue.
Lovely aren’t they? See pics of other Grono lamps.
Knitted Grono lamp shades
Michaela finds the Grono lamp too frugal. “It craved for an overlay. The milky background is just the right stage for a knitted lace cover in alpaca-silk-yarn,” she says.
