Thrifted Lantern


I found this lantern at a thrift store in San Antonio. I love the wavy, bubbly, makes-it-look-old glass! I didn't love the up close look of sponge painted brown on black. It needed a little tender loving care so I cleaned out the cobwebs, washed it well and covered the glass with masking tape (that was a pain) and gave it a coat of Krylon's oil rubbed bronze metallic paint. Now it is ready for an evening picnic and a home on the front porch.

Pin It!
