There was nothing wrong with the lamp, but I thought it needed some jazzing up for it's new home in my daughter's room. I found the perfect solution to dress it up while perusing the aisles of Hobby Lobby. They had an adorable white floor lamp with pink shade adorned with feathers. (I wish I had taken a picture of it.) I was too cheap to buy it and decided to make one like it using items I already had at home.
To re-create it I cut up an old pink boa & paper clipped it to the shade. I didn't want to damage the shade in case it looked bad or I decided to change it later.
You can see a few of the paper clips in the picture above. The boa is so full, you don't see them on the outside of the shade.
Here's the finished product:
I love the way it turned out, & you can't beat the price!
What do you think?
