I had a lamp in my bedroom whose lamp shade had seen better days.I forgot to get a pic of how it looked before I took off everything that was on it. It had same wallpaper flowers and some beads hot glued onto it. It also had a small home in it. This is what it looked like....yes I KNOW it needs to be dusted!!I bought an book of etiquette at Goodwill for 50 cents. Manner are cheap these days. I thoroughly studied the book and committed it to memory before ripping out some of it's pages. Don't worry. The part I ripped out had to do with addressing things to Mrs. ~rolling my eyes~
I then tore my pages into quarter pages and made sure that there were words and not just blank spaces on my pages. I then went to work mod podging those puppies on. I LOVE Mod Podge.
After I got the pages on like I wanted them, I decided to age it a little bit more. I just used some brown paint that was a little watered down. I painted it on and then rub/dabbed it off.
Then I went to work cutting out these FABULOUS butterflies that I had found on the net eons ago that I found again on the bottom of my paper drawer. No telling how long I have had these butterflies. I really do wish I could remember which site I found them on.
Diesel helped. You really have to keep an eye on him. He is a paper shredding machine!!
I then Mod Podged the butterflies onto the lamp shade.
Okay tell me.....what do you think?? Is it still too sparse? Does it need more on it? I am really liking it but thinking that it needs more. I mean other than DUSTING! You would have thought that I would have dusted the bottom before posting pictures on the net for the entire WORLD to see.
