But then I realized, wait a minute, the style is perfect for Halie's room, it just needs a little help. So I whipped out my white and red craft paint and mixed up some pink and went to work. Then I went to Hobby Lobby and found THE most perfect little trim to dress it up and give it that extra little touch of purdiness. I think I probably did it backwards, I should have picked out the trim first and matched the paint to the trim, but I was too excited to wait until I could get to the store. And in the end it all worked out perfectly anyways. Yay me! : )
So here she is.....
Ain't that just the sweetest lil' Shabby Chic lamp you've ever seen?!? I have to say, I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.
While I was at Hobby Lobby, out of curiosity, I checked out the lamp aisle. I found something that was somewhat similar for..........$50!! This one only cost me the $7 for the trim. It could have been even cheaper than that, but I didn't have a 40% off coupon. (Waaaaaa!) But again, I was too excited to wait until I got one. Oh well.
On what was supposed to be a quick trip to Goodwill the other day to return some shoes, I came home with this......
...... and turned it into this.
