Lampshade Renovation for Daisy’s New Room

Posted by on Jul 9, 2012 in Daisy's room | 27 comments

I am blogging from a friend’s house.

Our kids are running, laughing and playing all through the house.

I just finished this quick project, but the lighting is not great for pictures!

We have had such a full day. . . no time to craft!

But, we have had a great day!

So, this will be short and sweet!

We are in the process of redecorating my oldest daughter, Daisy’s room.

She already had a great lamp, but it just needed a little more color!

I started with this lamp – no, it is not a thrift store find!

But, we already had it and  we still like it!

It just needed a little more color for this “Anthropologie” inspired room!

I bought 3 rolls of blue and 3 rolls of orange ribbon.

I secured the first end with a safety pin.

Then, I wrapped and wrapped and wrapped!

Each time I ran out of a spool of ribbon, I just tied on another one.

I alternated colors.

I glued the ends down using fabric glue.

And, here is the final result!

One jazzed up lamp.

Terrible lighting for pictures.

Very happy children with a full fun day of being with friends!

Life to the full to you!

Here are the places that I party!
