I found this standard lamp base at my local ReStore for $4! It was the perfect shape that I wanted ,but it didn't have a shade.
Space Lamp Makeover
When we gave my son's room a makeover I knew I wanted to add a fun lamp that he loved. Looking around, I didn't see any I loved or that were just too expensive. So I made my own!
So using a DIY lamp shade kit, I put together a shade for the lamp and covered it with a cool space fabric.
While the fabric and shade glue were drying I got to work on the base.
I spray painted the base with a textured dark gray paint. This gave it a rough, grainy look and feel.
I then went over the spray paint with black and light gray acrylic paint. I just dipped a sponge and stamped it on. I wanted it to look like the moon's surface.
I found a rocket ship patch and hot glued it to the base.
I love the way it turned out and so did my son! He kept thanking me for making it for him and that make it all worth it!
