200 followers NO way.... WAY




Here is an example of a little
T2T
 I did last summer...
my friend got me these lamps at an
estate sale for like
I think $5 maybe $2...
Patti if you are reading leave a comment and let us know how much they were!!! :)

 The lamp base was a fUnKy red glass and the shade was lumpy!!!
BUT with that kind of deal.... who cares
and I was shaking up my chalkboard paint!!!!
 apologizing NOW for the lame pics
Anyways I always wanted to use my chalkboard
spray paint and I had some super CUTE owl fabric!!!
Have I ever mentioned my LOVE for OWLS!!!

I sprayed the base and while it was drying I tore my fabric into about
1 inch strips.  I hot glued the strips to the shade and made sure the strips overlapped
for complete coverage.

It needed something extra!!!
More is better RIGHT?
So I added some ball fringe to the top and bottom!!!
and WHA~LAA
CUTENESS!!!
 and now this BEE U TEE
sits next to my desk!!!
Do you see it... look under the tree!!!

OK so that is what I am looking for!!!
Not to toot my own horn or anything BUT
**TOOT**TOOT**
I took that lamp from drab to FAB!!!!
I hope you will be able to join me!!!
I will start the LiNkY Par-TAY
very soon!!!

  3. I love your lamp!!! I have a question...how did you tear the strips? Were they perfectly even, and when you overlapped, did you tuck in the frayed edge? I really think it is cute and something I actually might be able to do!!
