Save the Rimfrost crystals

Ana salvages the crystals from her Rimfrost lamp and let them breath new life to another.

“I bought this cheeeap old lamp at a second hand shop, as you can see it needed a lot of help to have a new and stylish life but here’s where my Rimfrost came to the rescue. I used only part of all the crystals and the rest are ready for another lamp I have in mind (keep tuned). So I gave a couple of coats of primer and a coat of white paint and few strokes of antiquing paint, cause it looked too white. Then I used the crystals and bought some nice shades. I’m so proud of the final look and how easy it has been.”
