I promised you all that I'd show you a couple more things that I've been working on for Brenson's nursery. I've had a lot of fun planning his room and can't wait until it's all finished!
We have always had a lamp in Brianna's room, and it's been an important part of her night-time routine. She knows that when the overheard light goes off and the lamp comes on, it's time to start winding down for the night. I want to have the same signals/routine with Brenson. However, this is the lamp that was in the spare bedroom (now his room):
I started with a self-adhesive lampshade purchased from the Hob Lob with a 40% off coupon (I think I paid $6 for it after the coupon), 3/4 of a yard of giraffe print fabric (also from Hob Lob), and the blue trim pictured below.
Brenson's mobile project.
After purchasing a new lamp base from Lowe's, I love the way it turned out (the silver lamp base was well-worn and just didn't look as good with the shade and other room decor). I think it looks great with the wall color!
With the leftover fabric and ribbon, I decided to cover a paper mache' B that I had purchased from Hob Lob. This was quite a project! The B is 3D (as you can see, it's standing on its own in the photo), and I had a hard time cutting the fabric perfectly to fit. BUT, I am thrilled with the finished product - though I will admit it took me 2.5 hours to complete *shakes head*.
