Ruffled Lamp


Here's another little lamp I decided to give a facelift. :)

She was looking so sad in her plain Jane skirt:


 So I was going to give her some flowers to keep her company like I did with my PB Kids lamp makeover.

But after I finished putting on the first layer of ruffles, I decided to just go ahead and keep right on going:


When I got to the end, I just wrapped the top layer around and hot glued it to the inside:


And here she is sitting pretty in my living room:


Unfortunately, she didn't get to sit there very long...once I had taken the picture, I realized just how sick of the red stand I've become, and I immediately took it outside and introduced it to some Rustoleum White...  Such is the life of a piece of crafter's furniture. ;)

Aloha!
