I had the most beautiful shaped wine bottle to work with on my latest 'rekindled' project! I just loved it and wanted to try my hand at a table lamp. I used tissue papers and napkins to decoupage the base, then painted over it with a mixture of transparent acrylics and powdered pigments. I just love the shine that this added to the piece! My husband helped out here by drilling the hole for the cord and, as you can see in the pictures, it works! This lamp uses a 4 watt night light bulb. I added the finishing touches of lace, ribbon, grapes and leaves, and a lovely little lamp shade and here it is, ready for a table!! I can't wait to work on my next lamp!
