>{Lamp re-vamp – (hey that rhymes!)}


Sorry i have been MIA this last week, kids are back to dance and soccer 4 nights a week + saturdays, and husband is still in iraq (coming home in May!) so i haven’t had a lot of extra time.  I do have a couple of fun projects that i started this week though – a framed mirror tutorial coming soon :)

I did manage to get this lamp done this week.  I bought it @ the Salvation Army for $10 –  for both the shade and base.  The pink lamp shade was pretty cute but didn’t work for the room.

I took off all the pink fabric and covered it in white cotton…

I made simple fabric flowers with the same white cotton and hot glued them on the lamp, here and there…

I put it in my kids bathroom, the one that i just recently re-did here.

I am thinking i want to rise it up a little, maybe those cute modgepodged books or something, i don’t know, that’s another project for a later time.  Why cant i ever just be DONE with a room?!?

Sorry, no tutorial for the flowers, i googled them a while ago and then just kind of winged it!  I used spray adhesive to adhere the new fabric to the shade.

I bought some cute little “blingy” buttons for the flowers – not sure if i should put those on, kinda like just the all white…

I will be linking up to these fun parties, go and check out every ones craftiness!!!
