Here is the final segment of my bedroom makeover...well, for now atleast.
With the material that I absolutely adore, I covered some lamp shades. It took more work finding a lamp that would work for this project (that didn't cost me an arm and a leg) than it did to actually complete the project itself. After searching and searching and searching, I finally came across some clearance lamps at Pier1 that would do the trick! Here is what they looked like before I started:
Wait, I must retract my prior statement that the lamp shopping took the longest part. That's a lie - a big lie! How did I even forget that I first painted the fabric! That's right...the yellow in the fabric was too much of a mustard color to match the shade of yellow I am going for in the room. When I was at the craft store, I was in so much aww over the pattern of the fabric that I didn't even think about the shade of yellow (oops)...** sigh** So I spent hours upon hours painting it the correct color. It was worth it though :)
Here is the final look: (ignore the unmade bed and messy night stand...I was too excited to take the picture!)
I made two lamps, because in the future, I would like to have 2 night stands. But for now, we just have the one. And that completes the beginning of our bedroom makeover!
