Time to Refurbish!


Hmmmm... what could this be?

















My lamp! Yes, I have had this lamp for years and it has always had this kind of ho-hum look, but not anymore! I decided to dress it up a little with some paper flowers that I created using the spellbinder Dahlia dies, Prism papers and my Cornish Stamps!

Here is a shot of just the shade. I love my die cut felt butterfly....gravitating toward the cluster of flowers. I airbrushed the centers of these flowers and a few of the buttons (to make them black) and added a suede ribbon trim to the top.
New lamp!

Wishing you all a surprise filled Valentine weekend! I know my sweetie has a special dinner he is making for me... a collective "ahhhhh". Yes, he is the best!

Have a great weekend!

oh, this is fantastic!!! but how do you clean it though?? I have huge problems with dust at home. How do you keep it from damaging your altered paper pretties??? :)
