Shabby Chic Lamp

One day I was in Hobby Lobby (one of my weekly trips) and I saw this pre-sewn ruffles in the fabric section. I was exited but didn't know what to do with it so I just stored it away in my head that they had them available there.

Later that week I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do with them.

I had this lamp base that my mom had given me quite a while ago that was just hanging out in my basement. So I decided I wanted to cover a lampshade in the ruffles and refinish the base and put it in my daughters room.

Black/Brown Lamp Base
 Sprayed with Krylon White Primer and then Krylon Glossy White
 Bought a Drum Shade from Target, Ruffles and Ball Trim from Hob Lob.

 Started at the top and hot glued all the way around the shade working down.
 Hot Glued the trim inside the shade at the bottom







I love all the texture of this lamp. 
It's cute in my daughters room!

Popped over from Fingerprints on the Fridge. Love how this lamp turned out. The pom pom fringe on the bottom is just adorable.
