Olivia loves its big impact for not a ton of work!  She says, “So many hacks can be waaaaaay too time consuming. Not this one!”

All it needed was careful application of Martha Stewart’s Liquid Gilding, for a deep shade of metallic gold covering the white and silver parts of the MASKROS lamp entirely. Olivia points out that Liquid Gilding is extremely stinky and needs to be applied in a well ventilated area.
