I’ve been wanting to paint this lantern for a long time. And I finally got around to it. I like the Bohemian lanterns a lot, and thought why not try painting mine and see what it looks like. If it failed, all I would have to do is spray paint over it.
This is how it looked before. It was okay, but kind of drab.
After removing the glass panels, I used metallic acrylic paints and started painting away.
It took about 3 coats.
Then I glued some faux gem stones to a candle to get the ‘gypsy’ look.
I like my lantern so much better. It’s going to stay this way for quite a long time.
Hope this was inspiring.
