You know when you shop around forever for the simplest of white lamps? Yea I know all about that.
It seems like the most basic item is never ever around when I look.
So the answer? spray paint. Yup just a good old slap of white paint and you good to go.
I found this massive lamp on sale at Mr Price for a mere R200 but it was grey and I thought enough is enough, this is GOING to be my next lampshade.
I’m so happy with the outcome and I definitely will keep spray paint in mind if something else catches my eye in the future.
White spray paint (unless of course you have been endlessly searching for some other colour)
Start with your clean base and gently give it a light sand over with paper. I really didn’t give it much sanding and its stuck really well.
I used about 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of spray paint. This alone finished both bottles.
I would suggest leaving about 30-40 minutes in between each coat.
Leave for a couple of hours to dry after last coat before handling.
I chose not to use a top coat as I didn’t want something shiny.
There you have it, such a simple and effective solution to my world ending dilemma.

During these dryer times, lips are more chapped and dry which is not pretty,it’s so important to keep your lips soft and hydrated by exfoliating them.
This is a super quick and easy DIY and your lips will thank you for it
You will need:
1 tbs sugar
1 tbs honey
½ tsp olive oil
½ tsp Vaseline
Gently rub a small amount onto your lips once a week and follow up with a thick layer of lip balm. I love to smear on Blistex DCT Daily Conditioning Treatment. You will wake up to super soft kissable lips.
