Liz's birthday is coming up and we bought her a new comforter set (sshhhhh...) for her bed.
JC Penny's had the cutest lamp displayed along with the bedding set, but it was on sale for $50 for the table version. Ouch! That is more then her entire bed set cost.
No can do.
I can, however, make one myself, using colors that were more suited for her room.
Here is a pix of the lamps from JC Penny's.
I marched my lil ol self over to Goodwill and picked up a lampshade for $4 and a pretty white tablecloth for $3.
If I had more patience, I could have waited it out and only bought items that were half off. I was chompin' at the bit to get this done, so I paid full price at Goodwill.
I just realized how cheap that makes me sound, complaining about paying retail at Goodwill. Ha!
I then went over to Michael's Crafts and bought a white feather boa (used a coupon) and ended up spending $5.
I went home, ripped the fabric off the lampshade and replaced it with fabric from the tablecloth.
I had a lamp from a previous trip to Goodwill ($5) and Corey painted it Canyon Black.
Total cost $17.
Not too shabby.
But don't tell Liz...it's a surprise!
