Hi everyone :-)
Wanted to share this suitcase lamp i made to go in a room with old cameras ans sewing machine
Made it a bit masculine and grunge to get the old feel.
Had a lot of fun getting my hands dirty and used a lot of different texture and paints to get the look I was going for. Used an old lamp and took it apart and painted it.
Also used a lot accessories from Tim Holtz.
Fun fun fun :-)
