Maskros, you are fun…

About a year ago (maybe longer?), we bought this Maskros light with every intention of hanging it in our living room. I saw a few online that were painted gold and decided that it needed to happen. So, after several painting sessions and cans of spray paint…I finally finished the light. It is such a statement piece and, if nothing else, it’s a lot of fun. The only drawback–it doesn’t put out much light. I wish I had known that before we purchased it and, since I haven’t read that anywhere else, I feel like I should pass that nugget of info on to you. But, still–it’s lovely and, for now, it’s staying.

Do you have any diy/semi-diy statement pieces in your home? Do share.

Enjoying the Good Life,



  1. Hahaha! I thought you were going to say you made this whole lamp…it is incredibly beautiful. Good choice on the color!! I wonder if you could switch out bulbs for a little higher wattage or if it’s an LED light (which would explain the not-so-brightness)? There might be a way around it…

      Ha! I wish I made this! How cool would that be? I did paint it gold and help assemble it…but that’s it. IKEA did the rest. : )

  2. I love it in this color! I usually see them in white but I like this so much more.
