I got two of these lanterns for a beachy grad party a few years ago. Ever since the party they have been taking up space in the closet. I had them ready for Goodwill, but then decided to try a makeover.
I just took out the glass, used some ORB and toasted almond paint to cover up the aluminum finish, some twine to cover up the Asian aspect at the top and a round base for more presence.
They went from wacky, tacky party decor to charming home decor. Now, they're taking up space on display in my living room.
Thanks for stopping by!
