21  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Lampy Redo! :) on: November 05, 2009 06:35:40 PM
So! This is my first post of an actual project, completed - I've reconstructed other things in the past though, before discovering this lovely website.

I had so many partial ideas about what to do with this lamp before I gathered the materials for it - it kind of became its own entity as I found each piece. I got the lace from the thrift shop, and the ribbon from the dollar store.

It turned out kind of sassy! I think I want to do something a little more natural next time - but this is a first, so yea!  Cheesy

So this is the original ikea lamp:

And this is my redo:

This is with the light on, so you can see the pattern of the lace better:

Ikea lampshades, lampshades in general are so great, cause you can make so many different sorts and just change them when you're bored! haha.

I'm thinking about painting the base black, to match - but, not 100% yet. I might hold off.

I really like the "style challenge" idea.. Smiley

I also like the recreation idea, it made me think of making jewelry reminiscent of certain eras.. not specifically recreated pieces.

I think all the ideas are really good so far though. Smiley

Nice Smiley How do you get it to fit so snug to the seat though, cause I'd like to re-cover mine but I feel like there would be "air pockets" at the indented parts.

Very nice! I love the pattern you picked! Smiley

Cool! I like these a lot! Another great, customizable gift idea!! Smiley

I don't know if this is obvious or not - but just a little tip..

Putting those tiny round furniture floor protectors on the bottoms of them to make sure they don't damage your tables would be a good idea! Smiley

I [LO][VE] these pillows! haha. Smiley Definitely a great idea for a Christmas gift (which I think I may employ this year!). Thanks for posting this!

Oh! Do you have any suggestions for the best brand of iron on transfers to use?

Ooo cute! I like the pleating - you could play around with it to get different looks too. Smiley
