Lamp Makeover

Do You Remember
this bedroom canopy from  The Tea Castle display? 

Recently it was being donated to an auction for the 
Macomb Charitable Foundation.
I wanted to add a few accessories 
to be donated along with the canopy.

A cute girly lamp would be perfect.
Not wanting to spend much, and with a vision in mind, 
I headed to the thrift store!


Sometimes you're just lucky what you find...
and lucky I was!

Doesn't look like much but remember,
I had a vision in mind!


A lampshade for .99 cents and it was Pink.
Couldn't ask for better than that!




Can you see the price???
Yep, $2.99
PERFECT...



The lamp got a quick makeover with some cream spray paint!


I searched through my stash for some trim.  
Found some pretty trim with pearls on it 
and  hot glued the trim to the lampshade.


 I added some pretty shimmer tulle and a BIG bow to the shade.  
Gotta love a glue gun, it makes things so quick & easy!

A little green and pink paint was added to the lamp.

And Here It Is....
My $3.98 Lamp transformation!

It was the perfect touch for the auction....


I'll be linking up to the following sites....

This first picture looks like something you might find in a little princess room. I love the colors together. I love the tutu skirt for the lamp.
