Pintar um Candeeiro :: Painting a Desk Lamp

 

 

 

No escritório temos três candeeiros Tertial do Ikea que, se bem que práticos, têm pouca graça. Há muito tempo que queria pintá-los de azul e ontem o Tiago realizou esse meu desejo (ele tem muito mais jeito do que eu para pintar com spray). Agora só tenho de fazer uns cortinados a condizer!
In the study we’ve got three Tertial lamps from Ikea — although very effective, I’ve always felt they were a bit bland. I’ve been meaning to paint them blue for long and yesterday Tiago made my wish come true (he’s just so much better that me when it comes to spray painting). Now all I need to do is sew some complementing blinds!

    Ficaram bem giros e bem pintadinhos…confesso que nunca pintei com spray, tenho medo de deixar pedaço com tinta a escorrer 🙂

    I did the same with ny study's lamp, although I didn't use spray…It would have been better, as I see in your photos.
    Colourful lamps are so much nicer than ordinary ones! I agree!

    No parapeito da sua janela está uma caixinha de costura igual a uma que me foi oferecida era eu uma menininha! A de xadrez. Ainda a guardo.
    É um regalo vir ao seu blog, para a vista e para a alma.

    Hi Grace,

    I didn't use any special paint… but I'm not too worried because I usually work during the day, so the lamps won't be lit for hours and hours at a time. But it's a good concern, thank you for your question!
