Reuse and Recycle

I have been working on Princess's room for the last weeks. I got the Martha Stewart set of stencils at Hobby Lobby and I love them!

(picture from Amazon)
I absolutely love this set!

This is how the lamp looked like before:

It was not THAT bad but it does not match the decor of the room right now. I took off the flower stickers and the flower trim. I then applied the stencil and secured it with painters tape. I used acrylic paint in yellow and pink and a sponge brush, just "tapping" on the stencil so the paint would not bleed.

After they dried, they looked like this:

I then sprayed painted the bottom of the lamp with yellow spray paint.  I hot glued lace on the edges of the lamp shade. I bought it at Walmart for less than 3 dollars. I actually matches the lace from the pillow slipcover I made from an old shirt.

And Ta-Da!
