I felt it needed more personality so I took out the spray paint and some of my crafting supplies. I sprayed painted the base of the lamp with primer, then white paint.
I picked Anna Griffin scrapbook paper because of it's girly and fun design. My lamp shade took four sheets of paper to cover. The basic rules of Mod Podging are use a thin layer of Mod Podge to glue down the scrapbook paper (smooth out any bubbles along the way), let it dry, then coat with another thin layer of Mod Podge. But I don't follow rules very well but it still looks good so I'm not going to harp on the details of the instructions I didn't follow.
The hardest part about using a cutting board like the one I have is that it's real hard to get very precise measurements.
If your cutter can handle it, stack your paper so they all come out the same size. I didn't think of this until later so the sizes are a little off but it's not noticeable enough to bug me...yet.
When working with a pattern be sure to always cut your pieces the same way. Again, this is when stacking your sheets, to cut, also comes in handy.
Here she is ready for the party.
I also made some changes to that arrangement. This is what it looks like now.
Not for long though. The dresser will soon be moving to the master bedroom. Decorating; it just never stops!
I am feeling a little under the weather so I will not be posting tomorrow. Have a wonderful weekend everybody.
