From drab to FAB … Lamp makeover!

Anyone who is allergic to feathers and PINK look away now! I inherited this lamp from my mother who was giving it to the charity shop. I thought I’d give it a little makeover for my (big) little girls room.

It started out looking a little dull and lifeless, so with a lick of white chalk paint, a glue gun and a FABULOUS pink feather boa this sad little lamp became fabulous DARLING!!!

( I think I may be secretly channelling my inner girl here but bear with me!)

This is the lamp in sitiu… what do you think? Any health and safety worriers out there rest assured that I made sure the feathers have no contact with the bulb.

Only time will tell on how practical the thing is after its experienced a bit of knocking about in a kiddie’s room, but for now am pleased enough.

ps. my big ‘little’ girl when she saw the nearly finished product “LOVED ” it. When I presented her with the finished product she said ‘ I like it but can we change the colour to yellow?’

All comments welcome in the comments below or if you have any ‘drab to fab’ projects to show and tell …pleease do!!

ciao for now,
