A Lamp for my Little Lady

Once again I spent the day actually getting stuff done.  I put the crib together and got my lamp revamp all finished.  Here is the final result...


This is how I did it.  I started with this lovely lamp that has been sitting on the floor in the corner of my room for over a month... oops :)



After wiping off the dust I taped off the cord and electrical stuff on the top and gave it two good coats of Rust-Oleum Cardinal Red gloss spray paint.  Here it is drying...





Any fellow pregnant spray painters out there?? My hubby bought me this beautiful mask when we found out I was expecting.  It's great! I know it's not the cutest thing but I can't smell the spray paint at all.  I think I will keep using it even after the baby gets here.



While that was drying I started on the shade.  Remember THIS lamp revamp a few months back??

Well, I was actually given two of those shades and I thought the shape would be perfect and girly for her room.  Here is a before shot.




I went into lots of detail on my first lamp post so if you want specifics click HERE.
Here is my shade as I am pulling the new cover over.  I found this great chocolate brown and cream dot quilting fabric at Hobby Lobby that matches the bedding perfectly.



And here it is just before I added the bias tape.



 I added some super cute lace flowers to the front which I will give a tutorial on in my next post.





And here she is all finished up.  What do you think?? I love it in the room.  I probably could  have been a bit more precise with the dots on my bias tape but oh shwell!  Hope you like it!









 Thanks so much for stopping by!!

ADORABLE!! I love the color combo. BTW, the mask doesn't look so bad when you've got a cute little flower in your hair. :)

Ooooh! I love the sneak peeks of the nursery. Can't wait to see it all together!

How Caute!!! You did a great job! Love the button detail! I need one of those masks. I am not pregnant but all the spray painting I do it can't be healthy to breath all those fumes in.

Ohhhhhh that is SO cute! And that mask is awesome. I think all spray painters need one. ;) I was just thinking tonight that I should spray paint the lamp in my kids' room red. I love it!

Pregnant spray painter here! I just got finished sanding my dresser and will spray paint it then off to do my lamp revamp. Everything is looking adorable for your little girls' room, you've got some mad talent!

oh my. I love that you are doing more of a baby chic room, rather than the traditional pink - so very cute! I have a shade to re-do as well, so I'll be bookmarking your tutorial.

The mask is GREAT! My hubby also bought me one when I was preggers with man-child #1 and was stripping and painting an old kitchen buffet to use as a changing table.

That lamp is adorable. I've got a base I can use but have been looking for a cheap, cheap shade I can redo. At least now I know what I'll do when I find the shade. Thanks for a great idea.

Janey said...

Very cute! And those lamps are usually pretty inexpensive too. I would wear that mask while changing dirty diapers!

Sue said...

Love the color combinations you used for the lamp. And those polka dots are precious!
Congrats on the baby <3.
