IKEA hack! How to transform a SMILA STJÄRNA wall lamp into a Super Mario Bros star!

My son loves everything video game related. So, instead of getting rid of the IKEA wall lamps he had in his bedroom when he was little, I decided to transform them!

Real easy to do!

Apply as many coats as necessary to hide the blue (for me, it was 3 coats). Let dry between each coat.

Using a small paintbrush, paint eyes with black and white acrylic paint, taking the time to let the paint dry between the black and the white.

And voilà! Simple and cheap! Can you ask for anything better?

  1. What a cool idea Natalie! I am always screaming about the power of paint and how almost anything looks better, improved when we paint it. And your pretty star is the perfect example. No need to throw something out that is no longer desired, just paint it. I'm sure your son must be thrilled.
