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!!

    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.

    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!

    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.

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

  20. Whitney on June 24, 2010 at 3:35 am

    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. 🙂
