Lamp Makeover Tutorial to PB Kids~Inspired Flower Lamp


   Today, I am going to share with you this easy tutorial for a No-sew Burlap Flower Lamp inspired by a similar one from Pottery Barn Kids! This is the same tutorial I just shared over at Truly Lovely, and I just had to show you lovely, crafty followers! :) 


Here are the supplies that you will need:

Lamp with lamp shade
1 yard of burlap
steel wool abrasive pads (Fine #0)
Spray Paint, I used Krylon Gloss in Blue Ocean Breeze
Hot glue gun

This is what the lamp looked like before I got started

                     

   I started by taking off the lamp shade. I first lightly sanded the lamp with Fine #0 Steel Wool Abrasive pads. This is not absolutely necassary, I have just found that doing this helps the paint "stick" better to the metal finish. Be sure to use a damp cloth to wipe off the dust if you do this step.




I then tied and taped plastic bags around the top of the lamp and the cord. These are the parts that I did not want painted.


 Next, I painted the lamp with about 3 thin coats, allowing time for the paint to dry between coats.
   While waiting on the paint to dry, I started on the lamp shade. When I decided to revamp this lamp, I knew I had finally found the perfect project for this off-white burlap that had been calling my name to be used for months!






I cut strips of burlap that were 20 inches long by about 1 and half inches wide. I used these strips to make rosette flowers, similar to the ones on the Pottery Barn lamp. You can find a tutorial for the flowers here. These rosettes are made basically the same way, although you need to be sure to keep the folded edge showing rather than twisting every time. Also, rather than cut circles to glue to the bottom of each on, I just left a couple of inches at the end of every one and folded and glue it underneath.







After I had made all of my flowers, I just used my little handy hot glue gun and glued them all onto the lampshade. At this point my paint was dry, so I put my beautiful new shade back on, and had an awesome new lamp at a fraction of the cost of the one at PB Kids! I actually like this one much better! This lamp will enhance the Kichler lighting you may already have in the room.
Have a wonderful day!!! :)) xoxo
