My Ballerina Lamp

This was such a fun project to do. I bought a plain black lamp and altered it to match my scraproom. I call this my "Ballerina Lamp" Something you might notice right away is the lamp shade is upside down! It looks more like a body shape this way and was perfect for a tutu! I alternated pleating white tulle and pink organza from about 2/3's of the way up to the top (right side up) then once I had all the tulle and organza on I flipped it over which which made the tutu fluffy. I painted the base of the lamp with white acrylic paint (2 coats) then I sanded along some of the raised edges and added rub"n"buff.
I also used the paint on the shade. If you're going to alter a lamp please make sure to use a 13 watt bulb or lower and never leave unattended and always check for chemicals in products that may cause fumes when lamp is lit.
Then I added some beautiful Websters Pages Fancy Feather trim available @ Karlas001 Etsy Store. I then added some beautiful Pink Trim-3 along the top, some recollections sticky back bling, and some beautiful Silver Flower Trim! Here are more photo's!
