I started another decorating project! I decided to make another guest bedroom in my home. When all of the family comes we always can use another bed! The guest bedroom that I have now has a King size bed in it and whoever shows up first seems to get that bedroom. I decided to put another King size bed in another of the bedrooms and I will show you the big reveal when it is all put together. For today I just needed some lamps to go by the bed. In doing this project I decided that I was going to try and use many of the things that I already have in my house. But in redoing the room I decided that a lot of the things that I wanted to use didn't match what I was trying to do so I kind of redid, and recycled, many of the accessories.
Here are the lamps that I started with. I painted the bases white and then needed to do something with the shades.
I went up into my flower room and found these left overs and flowers that I had picked up when they were really cheap at the end of the season.
I wanted to hide the trim because it wasn't as white as I wanted it to be so I used the flower petal garland and hot glued around the top and the bottom. I had two 4 foot garlands and each one exactly fit around one shade. ( I decided that it was fate, they were meant for the lamp shade!)
I then pulled the flower heads of of the stems and cut the small plastic thing on the bottom of the flower off so it would lie flat on the shade. I then hot glued the flowers onto the shade.
You are going to kind of get a sneak peek of what the finished room is going to look like, With the lamp turned on, the colors on the flowers don't show up as well in the picture, but you get the idea of how great it is going to look!
Here it is with the white base.
