Katelyn Morales Table Lamp November 09th, 2018 - 17:02:49
This lamp a nautical in a little bit, I'm gonna wrap the base of my lamp with this thick boat rope, but first I'm gonna go ahead and paint my lampshade and I'm going to use this painters tape to create some nice stripes. First, I'm gonna use the seam of the lampshade to put the first piece of tape on to be my guide, to make sure that they're, all straight without tearing the tape, I'm gonna pull it over across to the other side of the lamp.
Now that my tape is evenly spaced for my stripes, I'm gonna go ahead and cut out this centerpiece and then douse the whole thing in Mod Podge. So my paint won't bleed. I'm going to use the smaller twine to stabilize a larger rope as I wrap it around the base of the lamp start by positioning the center points of four long pieces of twine under the first strap of rope.
As you wrap to use, the tails of the twine to tie an overhand knot around the rope use square knots at the beginning and end of the process to make it easier, and you may want to ask a friend to help to keep the rope tight. I really like how the twine worked out at first. I thought I was going to use hot glue, but this turned out to be a great way to secure the rope to finish the base, I'm going to double knot, all of the small pieces of twine and then cut off the excess piece of large rope.
And then tuck it right on in there, and I'm going to carefully take off my painters tape to reveal my stripes sweet. I love how the lamp turned out. It really transforms a whole room to be a beach escape. A few other elements that I added are this really radical sea urchin that I made. I blew up some photos of our honeymoon and a really cool trip that we took to Maine. I reupholstered the chair with a vintage Swedish nautical print fabric on it. I also fashioned this nautical knot belt that I made out of rope.
