I am having so much fun with making my girlie accents for my crafty room. I am really liking my new lamp that I just finished!
I have had this lamp a long time. It looked fine in the entryway of my old house. But the new house is lighter and brighter...so I needed the lamp to transform!
I always liked this lamp. It has a nice shape. About a year ago Janae got a lamp at Home Goods that I love. I couldn't afford to get one too but I used it for inspiration for this one.
Here is the one Janae got...
I love the roses around the bottom of the shade.
So when Chantel and I went to Thrift City the other day we found a bag of roses for 35 cents. Probably thrown around a table at a wedding or something. They were white..and I liked them, but thought they might look pretty pink.
I dyed them and they came out really nice. They took to the dye quickly--I only had them in a couple minutes. I would have liked them a little lighter. A little dye goes a long way!
I painted the lamp white and rub n buffed the details.
I used the old lining from the lampshade to cut out and sew the new fabric for the lampshade. I didn't add a lining to the new lampshade because I like seeing the frame. I had thought of not putting fabric on it at all and just letting the frame show. I hot glued the flowers on, and some lace trim.
I just love the new look of my little lamp!
It looks pretty wearing a Tiara too.
I did another little project yesterday too. I took a frame that I liked and went well with my old paint colors...
and I turned it into something I love, that go with my new paint colors!
I love the details on this frame. I also painted the mat, and used the lace technique to soften it up.
Creating makes me happy! I was pleased with these 2 girlie projects.
Thanks for visiting..and Happy Creating!
