In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and since our lives were touched directly when our favorite person on Earth, our Grandma, was diagnosed, this post is all about pink!
Friday is about all things “F”, so today I present a Finished project (which is nothing to sneeze about around here). I facied up and frillified my daughters lamp. It worked just fine, but the shade was demolished in our last move, so it has been standing naked for a bit. It was also very blue, which no longer matches her room. I also got to try Freezer paper stenciling for the first time. It was a bit difficult to make it work (as I was warned it would be by fellow blogger, Erin @ Sutton Grace, thanks for the info Erin!), but I LOVE the way it turned out. Most importantly, so does my daughter!
Lamp (free – already had)
Shade ($3 @ Homegoods)
Spray paint in choice of colors (had yellow from another project, $4 for can of pink)
dollar store rope ($1)
hot glue & glue gun (in stash)
trim ($1.50 on clearance @ Michael’s)
freezer paper for stencil (in stash)
Total cost: less than $10
