Hey friends! With the never ending ridiculous temperatures here in Texas, I have been focusing more of my time on indoor projects. Today I tackled a lamp for my oldest girls’ room.
I had this old lamp that used to be on my bedside table.
I love the lines of it and knew a little Rust-Oleum would do the trick. First, I gave it 2 coats of Painter’s Touch Blue Sky.
While that was drying I started on the shade. This lamp had a shade but I wanted a slightly different shape so I bought this one from Target. I think I spent around $10 on it.
I decided to add some flowers to it. These are the girls quilts I was going off of…
I found a cute fabric at Hobby Lobby that just about matched them. It’s the same fabric I used on my storage boxes.
I cut a few 1.5″ strips.
Hot glue one folded end to some felt…
Then, I just twisted and hot glued it down.
Once that is all finished, you just pull the end of the fabric to the back and glue it.
I made all my flowers and then started on my stripe. I wanted to use ribbon for this part. Ash even went and got me some… Thanks Lash! However, I hated the way it wasn’t laying smoothly so on to plan B.
I taped off a stripe using some painter’s tape.
Then, I used a stencil brush and some acrylic paint to make my own stripe.
I let that dry while I shantied the lamp up just a bit. I used some 220 grit sandpaper to distress my edges.
Finally, I hot glued my flowers on randomly until they made me happy and I was done.
What do you think??
Hope you like it
I kind of LOVE using fabric flowers! I used them on these other projects too…
