I purchased this sun table lamp about 10 years in the past, lengthy earlier than out of doors solar lamps, chandeliers and many others grew to become preferred. Mine labored for just a few years then kicked the bucket and would not work anymore. I replaced the batteries a couple of occasions, cleaned out the place the batteries go but nothing seemed to work. So it has been within the shed for the last few years taking up principal shed house according to the hubby. I in the end determined to deliver it again out and update it and came up with a way to make use of it outdoors once more as a table lamp.
So here is what I started out with. I wiped it down with a wet rag and eliminated the entire dirt from it and let it dry.
next I eliminated the historic solar light from the bottom within the middle, and the plastic that wrapped around the coloration.
Now it’s time to paint. Here are the paint colours I chose. The fairway is for the coloration and the steel rust is for the bottom.
earlier than portray the bottom I took a plastic bag and wrapped it across the color so i would not get paint on it. I gave the base one coat of paint. Once dry do away with plastic bag and repeat step placing the bag over the bottom this time and spraying the colour. Once more I applied one coat and let dry.
So here it is painted.
that is the plastic piece that wrapped across the color. I might be changing it.
I can be making use of this mesh garden fencing to create my new coloration.
To cut I laid the mesh fencing down and positioned the ancient one on prime and cut round it. I used to be using left over pieces so I needed to reduce two and piece collectively.
here is the light i’m exchanging for the solar light. It’s battery operated and has a pull wire .We used it previously in a closet the place there was once no light . I placed it on the bottom of the lamp and secured it with the clamps attached to the base that held the ancient solar light.
here it is in location. Next I took my mesh and wrapped it around the inside the colour utilising the clips to glue in position.
0 I desired to add a bit of more element to the shade and opted to use these self adhesive pearls in a silver color. I used a glue gun to glue them. Going across the high and backside of the color.
1 So right here it’s all finished. I really like the way it turned out and i am comfortable i will subsequently use it again.
2 This task price me undoubtedly nothing to make as I used stuff I already had. Gotta love initiatives like that.
3 here it’s lit up at night.
4 ideal for sitting out at night on my deck.
