ikea maskros lamp

There are so many fabulous versions of this Ikea maskros lamp. Here is one I did about a year ago for our store in Chattanooga.   I started with some paper bowls and I used curved nail scissors to cut out a flower shape.
I painted the insides with left over pink ceiling paint.
The outsides had a woven texture to them and I loved how the gold paint from Martha Stewart looked on them.
I painted the inside of the lamp with gold spray paint and then hot glued on the bowls.
I was thrilled with the outcome.  The one negative was that the bowls were a little heavy so the top ones leaned down a bit.  I am sure no one else would notice. 
This was not a quick project but I enjoyed the slow cutting part.  It was kind of like having a needlepoint project.

Now on to all of the other projects that I have started but not finished....

I hope that your Monday is off to a great start!

I have seen several versions of the Ikea maskros "hack," and yours is, hands down, my favorite! Absolutely adorable.

I'm in the DC area, but my husband is a Chattanooga boy, and I can't wait to check out your fixture in person during our trip to Chatty this summer.

Kayce-this is amazing! I see the bowls and paint and scissors, but what did you use for the remaining parts... the long pieces attached to the inside of the lamp? Did you use the existing Ikea lamp, then just add the bowls?? This is awesome, and it looks perfect in your store!
Best, Whitley
