Pottery Barn Kids Inspired Lamp
I have decided since my baby girl has turned two that it is time to re-do her room and update it a little. I was inspired to do her room by some butterflies I found at Joann's ( post for a later date). A few days later the pottery barn kids catalog came and has given me even more inspiration. I saw this adorable lampshade with roses all over it, I fell in love with the lamp just not the price. So I decided to make my own, and took some pictures along the way.
Lamp and Shade ( I already had one)
6 bundles of Flowers ( I used roses but you could use whatever works best for you)
1) I pulled all of the roses off of the bouqets and trimmed down the back of them to allow them to lay flat
2) Glue flowers to the lamp shade. Start at the bottom and go all the way around and go all the way around the top.Glue a line of flowers connecting the top and the bottom. Allowing youself a template for all other roses to glue on.
3) Fill in the rest of the lamp shade with your flowers
4) Here is what it looks like on the lamp and turned on.
I have two wonderful children Our little man is 5 and our princess is 3. We live in Maine, where my husband is stationed in the Coast Guard. I have been married to my best friend since 2006. We met while I was in the Coast Guard and since then I have seperated from the Coast Guard. I am currently running a home preschool and working on my CDA. I was born and raised in Philadelphia, and have lived all over the country.
