I have always adored the polka dotted lampshade in my friend, Holly's first nursery. I am planning to copy it for my own :). A few years back I got a tall, thrift store lamp for 4.00 that had a big shade on it. I am going to redo to give a similar look to the lamp in her nursery pictured here. I am in the process of painting the lamp base in an ultra flat brown spray paint. I think this brand/kind was used in Cottage Living a few years back to redo a chandelier and it gives a nice smooth looking finish without the little sparkles that spray paint can have. First, I'll use some lightweight cotton duck for a slipcover over the shade. Next, add some brown polka dots with a round, foam stamper and craft paint. Last I'll trim around the bottom with some knife pleat trim found at Hobby Lobby to complete the look!
