The MASKROS pendant lamp, named after the dandelion, is a one of those instantly recognisable pieces. It screams IKEA. Luckily for us, it’s also super hackable. Here is a quick and easy IKEA MASKROS hack from Olivia of Minty Fresh Projects.
The plain white “before”, with flowers at the end of the stem.
The after, minimalism in gold.
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.
