See the finished project and the comparison:
Mine Theirs - Pottery Barn
The Pottery Barn lamps were quite an inspiration, don't you think.
Pottery Barn describes their lamps this way: "bands of galvanized metal wrap these whitewashed wicker lamps for a pleasing mix of colors and textures. Each band is accented with nails that have rusted finish for the authentic look of a found object." The most expensive one on the right sells for $299.00
I covered my ceramic base lamp with continuous wrap of natural jute using hot glue. I finished the look off with galvanized tab tape that I found in the plumbing dept. of Home Depot and braids of jute that I created. Since there were holes in the tape, I didn't want to add rusted nails.
Here is a picture tutorial of the process:
What was once an ordinary lamp is now a trendy jute wrapped lamp of yards and yards of jute rope trimmed in galvanized metal and braided jute.
I've created a wonderful whimsical addition to my decor that was totally inspired and copy-catted.
Until next time,
Take a little time to enjoy!
