This little project has been in the works in my head for quite some time. I found this lamp for free at the end of a yard sale day out here last summer. I intended on either tossing it when I found one that better suited Ella's pink princess room or making it over. Now that I am in my third trimester, I am determined to get all the little projects done that have been brewing in my head for quite some time.
Ella painted the lamp shade first. Pale pink. Her painting skills are amazing. We put two coats.
Then I cut 12 million little circles out of some of Ella's cute pink and white clothes that she has grown out of. I glued them on and it took a few hours but it was fun and kept me from mindless snacking so that is a plus. I also made two little rolled rosettes to go on the base to cover the screws that were there holding the silly bear in place.
I think it turned out really cute. Ella loves it and is proud that she helped. :)
