The finished Pink Pretty Lamp...

I shared earlier last week HERE my pretty pink lampshade transformation, now here is the completed project.  As I told you my partner Sharon was painting the lampshade.  I can't paint a stick figure, and she does absolutely beautiful work so she was in charge of the painting part of the project.  She did a wonderful job. 

Here's the lamps before Sharon began the project...


The lampshade (which I was in charge of) had matching green bias trim.


We wanted the lamp to be a pretty pink for our Tea Party Castle Display.  So Sharon started to work her MAGIC.
Doesn't she make it look easy?


Here's a close up once it was complete.... 



Can you see the pretty flower with the white polka dots?


The finial matches the lampshade trim perfectly!


Here's the completed project.... 
 I think we make a great team.  I can't paint, but give me a glue gun and some frilly trim with a bit of bling and I'll work my magic!


I just love the eyelash trim with the tiny pink beads. 
Wouldn't this be perfect for any little girls room.


When shoping at a thrift store or if you are out and about this spring on a garage sale hunt,  make sure you snatch up that old lamp that no one is looking at. You can easily change that old lamp into a new creation!  Stop by and see more creative ideas at the following sites.  That's where I'll be linking up...
