Hello amazing Friends! I have a sweet little makeover for ya’ll today!
Unfortunately someone must have knocked it over while it was in my booth and it smashed, however they did save the shade for me.
Then a couple of weeks ago I found this lamp at the thrift store:
The same exact lamp only in a different pattern! This one was missing its shade so it was perfect!
When I went to redo this one though, the burlap shade didn’t really do it for me, so instead I dressed up a plain white one:
I painted the body with two coats of DIY chalk paint in may favorite white: Behr’s Bit of Sugar. (Recipe HERE.) Then I used FrogTape to tape off a few stripes…
I painted them in with two coats of Dixie Belle’s Driftwood. I pulled the tape ofimmediately following the second coat.
I lightly sanded the details and sealed with Annie Sloan’s clear soft wax.
The shade is one I bought at Home Depot last year to use on another lamp, but never did. It fit perfectly and so much better with the colors I chose than the burlap one did.
It was a bit plain so I decided to dress it up with some simple rag rosettes. I usually make them with dropcloth, but I needed these to be white, so I found some of the fabric leftover from slip-covering our sectional (See that HERE.) and it was perfect for the job!
Here is basically all you need to make your own rag rosettes:
I shared a video tutorial on how to make these HERE.
Then I just hot glued them to my shade.
I think it turned out pretty cute!
My antique serpentine dresser I shared on Thursday was perfect for staging this sweet lamp! Visit that makeover HERE if you missed it.
Here is a peek of the cute little feet on the bottom…
Much better than the brown zebra, eh?
Or maybe your wild side really liked the brown zebra?? 😀
I’ll be back here on Thursday sharing more smalls! These six pieces are all finished and ready for the shop:
To my friends in the US, have a fun and safe 4th of July!! 🙂
