Over the holiday break, I had a goal to get my craft space in order. After Chatty Crafty, my STUFF was -literally- EVERYWHERE. All over. Upstairs....downstairs...kitchen...bedroom... every nook and cranny had soooooooommmmmmething stuck in it.
So! I went to the store and purchased a bunch of bins, and went to it. The organization is now done, now I am on to the "making it pretty" stage. That's where this lamp comes in to play.
I saw a lamp like this on Pinterest, and it was made by The Pleated Poppy. (awesome blog, BTW)
There was an ugly old lamp in my craft space that I was using. It had a flecked gold and cream base, and a plain old shade. It seemed like the perfect way to begin this project. :)
What you need:
bits of material
What you do:
-Spray the base with a couple of coats of primer.
Let primer dry between coats.
-Spray a couple of coats of spray paint.
Again, let paint dry between coats.
-Cut off the material of the shade revealing the metal skeleton
of the shade.
-Cut material strips about an 1 1/2 in. wide.
-Tie strips to the lamp shade.
There you go. Shabby Chic.
This pretty little lamp sits on my crafting table.
More on my organization annnnnd decor coming!
