DIY Lamp

I have been scouring my town for anything to fit my new classroom theme-- zebra print with pink and green.  I already have a couple of lamps in my classroom, but I thought one to match my color scheme would be fun so I headed out to Goodwill.  I found this lamp for $5.

I think this was someone else's project before me because the base has been spray painted black (previously silver) and has wire and bead decoration.  Not quite my style.

So, after some ribbon and hot glue.... I present to you my new lamp!  I am in LOVE with it!!  :)

Also in the works... a palm tree (like Deanna Jump's) and transforming my plastic drawer units.  More to come on that!

  2. Thanks! We can have lamps, but we have to watch how we plug them in (no daisy chains and only 3 prongs into the wall) and it can't be the kind that is like a bowl facing up (because the dust settles there by the light bulb). A huge chunk of my school day is spent with only lamps on... ahhh, so relaxing.

  3. I love lamps too! And yours is precious, the ribbon looks great=)
    When you finish your plastic drawers please post pictures, I'm thinking of doing that too and want to see how it works for you.
