I got this idea off of pinterest. It was the cutest idea since sliced bread and I was determined to make this lamp and base an entire room around the lamp. I was too picky on the shape of the lamp and the style of the shade so I wasn’t able to do it on thrift store finds like the original crafter but my child still has a unique lamp that I made for him!
The paint I used was Americana brand and I found two wooden footballs at Joanne’s to use for the feet. I just flipped them upside down and painted the bottoms to make the feet. The eyes I used the white paint pen that I had left over from making the Lumas.
Painting the lamp base was a little tricky and I had to do 3-4 coats to get a good solid coating on the base. The dry time was surprisingly fast so it still only took a couple hours from start to finish. I did let it sit over night and then HD sprayed two clear coats on to keep things from chipping and flaking. Then I glued the feet onto the bottom of the lamp and VOILA! It’s a Bob-omb lamp perfect for a Mario themed bedroom.
