My Lampshade Makeover....a little girlish whimsy.


I found a great lamp at a yard sale a couple summer's ago, but it wasn't really "fitting" with my house, so it was made-over to fit my nursery. The nursery is supposed to be fairly gender neutral, but I put more "boy" touches on my son's side and more "girl" touches on my daughter's. This was one of those girlish touches that I may have gotten carried away on.
Flower tute from House of Smiths, and colored brads from Micheal's made up the embellishments for the lampshade.

I simply used black slinky fabric and spray adhesive to recover the shade.

All finished. This adds some girlish whimsy to the space.
