Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ is having her weekly Met Monday. Please visit Susan ... she has the best blog and is such a sweet person.
This week I am sharing a lamp that my daughter had in her dorm room in college. She had the lamp for 4 years in college and then it retired to my basement where it is has been now for about 7 years. I needed a lamp for my sewing room so I painted it and covered the lamp shade.
Forgive me for the quality of the picture ... I had to search a long time just to find a "before" picture. Her dorm room was blue and yellow and was really cute at the time. It was very inexpensive.
I knew I would eventually do something with the lamp someday.
This is after a couple coats of paint and cherry fabric to cover the lampshade.
I covered the lamp shade and added the large rickrack. It was very simple. I just used a glue gun to attach the rickrack. I had the fabric along with the rickrack. My window valance matches the lamp shade. My sewing room has Mary Engelbreit pretties and cherries! I will show you pics of the sewing room when I organize it! LOL
That may never happen! :)
Here's my "new" lamp on a small baker's rack in my sewing room with my other goods. I really am trying to organize! This project didn't cost a penny and I really love it.
Thanks for visiting and please pray for the poor people in Haiti. It is so sad and heartbreaking.
