A Little Girl’s Pink Room and Lamp Re-do

Today I’m talking about a pretty pink themed room and a lamp I made with scrapbook paper. Smile 

Like most my adventures, my inspiration comes from the thrift store.  After I spotted this little munchkin I knew I had to buy her.

       Cost: $2.00
Like most things I buy from the thrift store they always need a little TLC.

No problem, on my last trip to Michaels I spotted Krylon Fairytale Pink spray paint on clearance for $1.99.  That color is SO JUST PERFECT!

So off I went to tape and spray paint my little lamp.

I previously bought this lamp shade for $1.00 and sprayed it pink too.

Once everything dried I found some left over scrapbook paper and torn it into pieces and Mod Podged it onto the lamp shade.

And Somehow I came out with this sweet little lady.

The flower and pearl necklace was just thrown on there – my daughter was wearing it in the picture above.  I also embellished it with little glued on jewels I had laying around.

TOTAL COST:  $5.00  Smile  Now that makes me happy!

I had to add this picture because you'll be so inspired!  The wallpaper-esque panels behind the beds are actually pieces of big cardboard that were mod podged with scrapbook paper, JUST like what I did to the lamp shade!  Then she had MDF trim from Home Depot cut to fit around the cardboard panels.

  1. That is the most adorable lamp I've ever seen!!! I can't believe you just ripped paper and MPed it to the shade!!!

    And the panel behind the bed is genious too! :)

  2. That is so sweet....and creative. Always in awe of what ones imagination can do!!
    Great job...

  3. ACK!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't really know what else to say.

    That lamp is shockingly cute. I adore the pink paint you chose and you'e so brave. I never would have thought of the paper. Clever, clever girl.

    That being said.... how come you always find these lamps at the thrift store? The one and only time I bought lamps at the thrift store I came home with gigantic beige monters that are beyond redemption. I think I'll give them to you and see what you can do with them. It'll be good for your blog.

    Also, I *love* that cardboard idea!

  4. GORGEOUS!!!! I really want to do a lamp re-design for a table lamp in my living room... I might have to steal some ideas from this post! :D

    Thanks for sharing :-)

  25. The lamp is cute.
    Thanks for sharing some tips about lamp making and decoration.

  26. ohhhh...this is sooooo pretty. I love the fabulous item you've created. It would be dreamy for any little girls room!


  27. This is beautiful. I'd like to do a beach themed one for our den. Do you place the torn paper randomly or is there a certain order I should use? Thanks for the gorgeous ideas :)

    1. Hi Terri!

      Just place it completely randomly! I wouldn't make some spots have lots of paper and others have only a thin section though. try to do it all around the same thickness. When the light goes on, you will see a very cool patchwork feel to the lamp shape. I really like it, but that is why I wouldn't pile up the paper on one side, and not as much on the other. Hope that makes sense! Send me a picture - a beach theme would be cool.

  28. So sweet - what a great addition with the pink. Thanks for sharing at our link party. Take care, Laura

  29. Love to make this but can't find the scrapbook paper in this pattern. wish i knew the name of it or where it came from. could do another pattern but why when I love this! great job

    1. I wish I knew the name! I got it at Michaels Craft Store, hope that helps and have fun making it :-)
