So, a few weeks ago I came across this Ombre Lampshade over at Vintage Revivals and kind of FELL IN LOVE with it! I instantly knew that I wanted to do a version of this for the nursery.
I used Mandi's very detailed tutorial, and had no issues at all when it came time to make my own.
I ended up buying the lamp base and shade from Target (after a a long, unsuccessful trip to Walmart, Hobby Lobby, Kmart and Big Lots). I wish I would have went to Target first, but - who knew I would find this cute lamp base ($9) and the shade ($7).
Once I had all of my supplies, I started wrapping with yarn. It actually didn't take as long as I thought it would to complete this project - and I LOVE the final outcome. Here's my version of Mandi's Ombre Lampshade:
Super cute, right? Now we just have to finish Hubby's Electrical Spool project. All that's left is a little painting!
