I've slowly been piecing my craft room together since we moved into our new home last November. Things are starting to match. Furniture is slowly getting made over to look like it belongs in this room. I'm adding pretty things to brighten up my space. Tonight I finished two quick projects - a lamp shade makeover and an embellished frame to hold the cutest Laura Winslow printable.

Let me tell you about the lamp first. Prior to moving into our new home we were living in an apartment for a few months. The arrangement happened because we found perfect renters to move into our other house (where we had previously been residing) before our new home was ready. Everything was in storage and we didn't purchase any functional furniture for our new tight space. The master bedroom didn't have a light fixture and we didn't bring any lamps so I ended up buying a small desk lamp. The lamp was reasonably priced (<$10) and I ended up using it on the piano in our new home. I had a brilliant idea to dress up the lamp shade with heart decals for Valentine's Day earlier this year.
I should have done this months ago because I'm really happy with my new lamp! I used Mod Podge to cover the shade in burlap. I folded the edges over the shade and secured the burlap with my glue gun. To finish the shade, I used my glue gun to attach a few rosettes made from my scrap fabric and burlap.
Next I dressed up the free printable I saw on Laura Winslow's blog today. Just a quick side note about Laura - I was able to chat with her for a few minutes at an Arizona Girls Night Out event recently. I already adored her photography and blog but meeting her in person solidified my crush. She is wonderful!
How perfect is this print?
I love how this turned out!
Hopefully I'll be ready to show you the entire room soon!
