Awhile back I got a lamp base at Target on clearance for about $6.
I figured I would use it in Haley’s room but the lampshade I had was one I got from Goodwill and it was hideous. But it was only about $2 so I figured I could come up with some way to cover it’s ugliness.
So after, ooohhhh, about eight months I finally figured out the perfect solution.
The idea came to me as I was cleaning out Haley’s closet.
I found a tu-tu skirt that she used to wear last year that didn’t fit anymore, and I knew it was too cute and held too many memories for me to just donate it.
I was going to just put it in a box but suddenly I had this amazing idea to use it as a cover for Haley’s lampshade!
It only took about three seconds!
Well, maybe like, five minutes to get it perfect. =0)
The bottom of the lampshade was just a little wider in circumference (wow, haven’t used THAT word since high school), than her skirt was, so I cut about a 1” slit up the back of it just to get it to fit over the shade completely.
Can you tell that Haley is an animal lover?
I also love that I can remove the skirt at anytime and change out the style of the lampshade.
I could totally be onto something here…slipcovered lampshades??? Genius!
Only six days to Christmas peoples!
I still have so much to get done…namely, almost all of my shopping.
