Good looking Gronos
The Grono lamp is definitely a hacker favourite. Its smooth rectangle shape opens it to lots of possibilities. Here are a few.
Decoupage a Grono
Ingalill spent half an hour pimping this lamp. She found the picture and printed it, découpage it on and finished with a coat of varnish.
Have a Grono pARTy
Jen of Painted Fish Studio threw a pARTy, where her friends gather at her house and make an art/craft project. The object in the limelight was the Grono and at the end of the evening, out came a delightful array of Grono lamps, pimped to perfection.
Paper is used as the main decorative element, stuck onto the lamp with gel matte medium – which takes longer to dry but more forgiving when it comes to placement than glue.
Lovely aren’t they? See pics of other Grono lamps.
Knitted Grono lamp shades
Michaela finds the Grono lamp too frugal. “It craved for an overlay. The milky background is just the right stage for a knitted lace cover in alpaca-silk-yarn,” she says.
