I finally completed the lamps
Do you remember a few weeks ago I posted a picture of Sophia's completed lamps?
I loved the way the bases turned out but wasn't crazy about the shades. I asked for ideas on what to do to jazz them up and Emily from Decorchick recommend I make rosettes and even had the simplest tutorial to follow.
Emily has an amazing blog and it's always one of my daily
stalks reads. She's super friendly and has wonderful ideas.Definitely inspires me to give objects I normally would pass over a second look.You should swing by and take a look at some of her terrific projects.
Anyhow I took her advise and look at just how cute the lamps turned out
The rosette were definitely the finishing touch the lamps needed.
My cousin Michele had given me beautiful curtains last year that she no longer was using and I knew when we finally re-did Sophia's room they would be just perfect. She gave me 4 panels but I only needed three so I used the extra panel to make the rosettes. I even had enough to cover the top of Sophia's computer chair(I'll show you in a later post)
We're just thrilled how they turned out. Thanks for the inspiration Emily!
