For the past couple weeks I have been finishing up my daughter’s room – I am so happy with the way it is turning out – It is super duper girlie and I love it! It is my favorite room in the house right now! Her room needed a lamp and I wanted it to be all fluff and stuff so I went with a ruffled lamp – If you want one too – you came to the right place!
First: Find a lamp. I used a lamp and lamp shade that I found at Target for about $12. I looked at the thrift store for several weeks for one that I could use then gave in and bought one – but still $12 isn’t bad.
Second: I spray painted the bottom “baby blue” by Valspar that I bought at Lowes.
Third: While my paint was drying, I snipped the edges of some ivory organza I had and ripped it up into strips.
Fourth: Using the method I used to make these ruffled flowers, I ruffled up my strips.
Fifth: I used a glue gun and hot glued my ruffles to the lamp shade.
Sixth: I started on at the very bottom edge on the back side and applied about 3-4 inches of glue at a time and worked my way up the shade until I was done. Since I tore my stripes my lamp is a little shabby – just the way I wanted it!
Last: I attached the lamp shade to the stand and was done!
I love the way it looks in her room! It is so funny how a cute little lamp can make such a big difference!
