A Lamp - Pottery Barn Style

While looking for baby girl inspiration in the pages of my Pottery Barn catalog, I came across these adorable lamps with a hefty price tag. The lamp shade itself sells for $99! Add the $50 lamp base to it and you are shelling out $150+ for a lamp! Cute, but not in my price range!

I found this mini-lamp at Target several months ago for $8 (yeah, I could have done better on the price but I just couldn't resist that curvy base...) and the plain white shade was just screaming out for something to jazz it up. I added some pink, mini roses with hot glue all around the shade....

The rose bushes were 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby and I used almost 4 full bushes to cover the shade.

Total for flowers: $14 ($3.50 per bush) + Lamp: $8 = $22

I love the way it turned out!
I think I could get used to this pink thing... :)
(The color is coming across more red in the picture, but it really is a deep pink color).

I think it will look simply stunning in baby girl Davis's room -
if I ever have a room to decorate for her... baby steps, baby steps.

  1. I love it. I haven't ever checked out this blog but saw it on your Facebook post. I had to smile when I saw your Mother Teresa quote. I just put that up on my kitchen wall.
