I’m sure that when you read the title of this post you thought, “Oh, she’s going to post pictures of herself.” lol! I thought I’d give you a good laugh. Don’t I wish I was pretty and petite!
This is the sweet little thing that I am talking about.
You may remember last April when I snagged this lamp at a thrift store for the mere cost of $3.99.
I love the white hobnail base, but the shade needed a makeover.
After pinning (Restoration Redoux) this beauty to my pinterest I decided it was just what I was looking for.
I cut lots of 3” circles. Then the fun began. I folded both drop cloth and muslin into thirds and cut 3 at a time. It took awhile, but the result was well worth it. Oh, and they don’t have to be a perfectly round circle.
Fold each circle in half and then into fourths. I dabbed a bit of glue there to make sure it would stay.
Then just hot glue them randomly to your shade. I tried to kind of use the brick method and made each row off set.
Want to see where this little petite thing ended up? I had this sweet dresser in my craft room. After, I found the cabinet of my dreams I had to find a new home for the dresser. I am in the process of decorating the guest bedroom in the basement. I think it’s going to be perfect in the room.
Don’t you love the stripes and the curvy legs? This gal has some shape! I wish I could take claim to those cute stripes, but nope; I bought her that way. Another great piece from the damaged goods store.
I borrowed the bird garland from my chicken wire display board.
I found the dainty mirror and paper bird at the damaged goods store.
I’m sure the little bird thinks she is nesting upon a bed of posies.
I think my petite lamp likes her new home next to other milk glass. One bowl is filled with dew kissed roses from my garden and has a pink beaded antique hat resting on it’s rim. The other holds lavender and a pretty scented heart given to me by my sil, Laurie. She brought it home from her recent trip to France.
When I was getting close to the end I could tell that I was going to run out of circles. Alas, I had cut all of my drop cloth and muslin scraps. What’s a girl to do? I cut a few white burlap circles and added them here and there. Loved how it turned out!
