Use Coastal Candy to create a stunning Farmhouse inspired set of lamps.These ugly lamps were free with some second-hand tables I had purchased. I didn’t see any use for them at first glance, but then inspiration struck, why not transform them into something I could use.This was fast, easy and of course therapeutic. Give me a paintbrush and stress just melts away. Cleaning-The most important step to a great finish, that lasts. I use vinegar and water with a sanding sponge. Oil and wax is the enemy when it comes to paint adhering to any surface. Mix- I mixed Coastal Candy into Shabby Paints Garfield Grey until it was the consistency of icing.
