You guys! Would you believe me if I told you that I actually I made a Copycat Pottery Table Lamp with an ugly brown vase with an even more hideous glaze?!?
These pottery lamps retail from $400- even a $1000! I am not even kidding.. Here is an inspiration pictures for your reference. McGee and Co has a similar version that retails for $400 USD.
Now, imagine if I told you that you did not need to spend hundreds of dollars to have these gorgeous lamps! Lets be real, I was never going to spend hundreds of dollars on a lamp. And you know how much I love converting thrifted finds into unique pieces and use them even for seasonal home decor.
I am going to transform this ugly $7.99 Vase from Value Village into something similar and create a Copycat Pottery Table Lamp!
There are a few steps to creating this look.
First, we have to give the ugly thrifted vase look like pottery.
For this step, we will need Black Spray paint, Brown Spray Paint, some Drydex spackle, and some wet dirt (optional)
We are going to start off with spray painting the vase brown.
Next we will wait till its semi-dry, and add a thin layer of Drydex Spackle.
Let that dry a bit, and add black spray paint. Rub with dirt while the spray paint is wet.
Repeat until satisfied with the look you want.
Now we are going to take the Copycat Pottery Vase into a Table Lamp.
Now, this part was 100% Inspired by Danielle at The Nest on Powell. She purchased a pottery vase from Home Depot and converted it into a lamp. I saw that a while ago, and had that filed in the back of my mind for when I saw a vase I could convert into a lamp.
For this part you will need: A bottle Lamp Kit, Small terracotta dish that covers the mouth of your vase (this will form the base of your bulb, masonry drill bit, lamp shade + harp.
First, we drilled a hole in the terracotta plate and the base of the vase.
Next we threaded the electrical cord through, and then attached the bottle lamp kit and the harp to the lamp base, and attached the shade.
And done! Isn’t that one heck of a before and after?!
All the supplies including the vase cost me roughly $60! Isn’t that a DIY!
