DIY Painted Lantern | Third Time's A Charm

Good morning friends!  I hope you had an enjoyable weekend.  I've had a couple productive Saturdays in a row, which has been great for getting some things crossed off my to-do list.  Hopefully, you'll be seeing some of those projects here soon!
So, on to today's DIY......
Painting this lantern I purchased at JC Penny's seemed like an easy afternoon project, but it has taken seven months and has received three different coats of paint....well, more like 15 coats if you think of each layer and three coats of each.  But now it is finished, and I finally LOVE it.  I'm sharing the whole tutorial (as well as the awful before picture!) over at my friend Lisa's blog, Mabey She Made It, today.
