Not long ago while I was cruising around through one of my favorite stores Pier 1, (especially at lunch time feels really good to get away from work and relax) I saw this romantic lamp, perfect for my bedroom…with only one problem, price tag..
The laced gave it such a romantic feel, perfect bedroom lamp..I just didn’t want to spend the $75..
Not long after, when I was deal hunting at Goodwill, I stumble upon this lamp base ..$5.99? perfect for me..I didnt like the brass look though..
same shelf, one feet apart, was this lampshade..
at that price tag, you bet I was doing the happy dance..a few days later, browsing around the misses department, I found this lacey tank top, perfect for what I had in mind.
First I painted the lam base with Krylon
then I detached the lace from the tank top, after all, that was the only reason I bought it…then, wrapped it around the lamp shade, and hot glued it all around the top and the bottom edges..quite a few burned fingers later, I got this..
Awesome, right? Mission accomplished!
and I loved the color so much, that I painted this little figurine as well..
Now, while it is far from being perfect, I love it..and it looks perfect with the dresser..And at the end of the day, I am happy to report, my cost was less the $15..
