I'm f-i-n-a-l-l-y getting something done in my bedroom! I've vacillated on colors for such a long time and now I think all is well. :) I will show the other changes soon, however, thought I'd show you the lamp shade I just made.
I started with just an inexpensive, plain white shade from Target. I gathered the notions from Walmart and Hobby Lobby.
I'm really not a burlap girl (please, please don't hate!), however, I found this woven ribbon and thought I might use it in some way....at least I have a touch of burlap in my home now. :) Honestly, I see so many of you do great things with it...just not my thing. :) I love the trim with the beads on it...a touch of teal, orange, gold, etc. The animal print ribbon called my name when I entered the door of Hobby Lobby! I found the flower in the hair accessories area.
I hot glued the bead trim on the underside of the shade. The first layer on the outside is the burlap ribbon. Now....I finished the shade in stages and totally forgot to take more photos. I'm just not good in the photo dept. Would one of you please come and be my assistant? ;-)
As you can see, I added the burlap trim to the top edge also. Then I used the animal print ribbon on the bottom edge...just dots of hot glue all the way around. The ribbon flower trim was added to the top edge...same deal, dots of hot glue all the way around. The start/stop point was the seam on the back side of the shade.
I already had the gold base and wanted to leave it as is. I want gold and silver accents so this is a starting point. See that luscious color on the wall? It's a deep teal/turquoise ~ more to come on that!
Full view! The nightstand is "in the process" of being painted. More on that to follow ~
I know many would never share an unfinished look but hey, just keepin' it real here! ;-)
Another full view! Tune in later this week for the finishing touches ~
