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!!
