OLD LAMP: NEW GET UP!

Hi Everyone!
We all need a little warm glow...
 

My mother had a wooden lamp from Manipur long back. It was not used and stayed in store-room for ages. I brought it to my home...

 The lamp is detachable. I opened up each part. Sanded it with sand paper and coated it with fine wood filler and sanded it again to smooth finish.

Here is the lamp before decoration or polish...

I used some black marker pen and pearl white acrylic paint, and painted a pair of dragon flies in garden.


Then painted some markings like tribal burnt wood mark on the stem and feet of the lamp.

Here is the lamp after painting and three coats of clear varnish to seal the painting and also to protect the wood.

In my living room corner...
Love the rich warm glow...
