Let Your Light Shine Bright

Thursday, September 22, 2011

We're wrapping up so many little projects in the nursery that I can't keep up on the blog. I should have a few more posts in the next few days if I can squeeze it in between company visiting, football games, etc.

I scored the most wonderful elephant lamp at Home Goods during my summer visit to Texas. I had to stuff it in my suitcase for the trip back and ship the lamp shade, but it was so worth it! This is the lamp shade that came with it. I started riping off the ribbon trim thinking I would use shade and improve it, but it just wasn't working. The shade was too big and when the light was on, the check pattern showed through my fabric.

Plan B, I found this lamp shade at Tuesday Morning. Not quite the right look, but the right size and shape.

A few ruffles and cute tiny pom-pom fringe later and we have ourselves a happy fix.
