knock-off lamp

I saw a beautiful flower covered lamp in a Pottery Barn Kids catalog and fell.in.love. I knew I had to have it for Lauren's "big-girl" room but I didn't want to pay the SKY HIGH price for it. So, I decided that I would attempt to make it myself.

3 months later....it is done!

I hot-glued every single one of those roses on there and it took FOREVER. I am really pleased with the way it turned out though.

Disregard the dust on the table. The lamp has taken up every second I should have spent dusting.

It really looks pretty with the light streaming through it. I really couldn't be happier now that it is done. I think it adds just the right touch of sweetness. I'll keep you posted as we s l o w l y transition Lauren's room...the black furniture will be gone and new color will go on the walls. I can't wait. But, then I really can. She still looks absolutely adorable in her crib. I think I'll keep it that way for just a bit longer.


  1. That's awesome!! Jason and I seriously just saw that lamp at the PB Store 2 weeks ago. I saw it, loved it, and told him "I think that could be made, don't you?"

    How funny that you made it!! I'll have to get the info - love it!!!

  2. Amazing! She can't be ready for a big girl bed already!!!

  3. I'll start praying for you now :) We moved Luke to a big bed a couple of weeks ago...I'll have to give you the details soon!
