Materials: IKEA Regolit Pendant Lamp, Måla brushes and water paint
Description: I needed a cheap lamp shade for my entrance. The style of my apartment is Japanese and I searched the internet and found one with painted cherry blossoms. But alas, it was way out of my budget. So I got a Regolit lamp from Ikea along with Måla water color and brushes from the kids’ department.
I painted some branches and glued cherry blossoms on them when the paint was dry.
