This little light of mine

Don't know if you're feeling crafty
but I'm really into the




thing these days.

In our last home Pumpkin's room was bright pink on 2 walls and
a petal soft purple on the other 2 walls and ceiling.

The wood trim in our new home wasn't going to be painted
and the designer felt this bright pink wasn't the best choice with the wood.
So it was time to tone it down a bit and give her some glitz instead.
We realized she wanted


"Hey, Shabby Chic!"
I love white and sparkle and mismatched so this is perfect.

I will show you bits and pieces of her room as time goes on,
but today--her lamp.

It is from the IKEA As-Is dept.
And my mom had found a purple shade at one point for it.

When I saw the STEVEN AND CHRIS design show,
I knew what I wanted to do.

Like I said, the shade was purple so now when the light is on

it gives such a nice warm glow of pink to the room.

It was really easy and only cost $8!
(I got the daisies at the Dollar store)

Pumpkin loves it!
And so do I!

and get more ideas and a video on re-purposing lamp shades

Happy Crafting :)
