My latest project for Jack’s room was super easy and c-h-e-a-p cheap. I got a $5 lamp from IKEA (yes, $5 for the whole thing) and cut out polka dots of all different sizes from the left over felt from the Modern Baby Boy Collection that was used for last week’s safari wall art. I probably cut 80 circles out with my hand punches. (I could have used my Cuttlebug machine and Nestabilities dies, but this time I went old school.) To finish it up I then glued them onto the shade with plain ol’ tacky glue.
Emma wants one now, too. She already has a lamp with a plain white shade so I’m just going to glue the dots (pinks, greens and chocolate brown – Emma’s colors) to her existing shade.
It looks great along side the recycled the paper lanterns from Jack’s Baptism Party!
