Intro: POKEBALL Night-Light
Son needed a nightlight. Couldn't find a cool Pokemon one for him. So I made him this awesome POKEBALL.
IKEA FADO table lamp : $19.00
Home Depot Red Rustoleum Glossy Protective Enamel: $3.75
I had everything else in the garage, I don't remember how much it all was.
But you will need:
Step 2: TAPE!
Mask off the White side of the PokeBall
Step 3: BAG IT!
Use the bag to mask off the rest, add another layer of tape to secure it
Step 4: PAINT IT!
Spray the red half. 6-8 inches, sweeping motion. You know how to do this....
I did 2 coats. Once dry, I peeled the tape and removed the bag. I added the Black Duct Tape.
I left the center to make room for the circle.
Step 5: Circle IT!
I used the spray can as the template for the black outline of the dot.
Using two halves, the black circle wasn't perfect, but no fear, I used the can to trim the edges to perfection.
Then I punched out a circle from my pin machine hole punch. Its about 1.25". You can easily use a milk cap or a half dollar or freehand with the blade. cut out the circle. If there is red paint underneath, just scrape it with your fingernail. it should come off pretty easily.
Step 6: DONEZO!
Finished product! put the guts back into the lamp and turn it on!
Step 7: GOTTA CATCH EM ALL!
Enjoy the nightlight.
