Lamp redo.

I recovered this lamp weeks ago and I’m just getting around to showing it off!IMG_0878

I found this lamp at the Rescue Mission Thrift Store and loved the shape of it but the base was a tan yellow color and the shade was cracked.  I swear I saw a photo from quilt market a few times back with a lamp similar to this in the background of Anna Maria Horner‘s booth, but I can’t seem to find it again. I loved it when I saw it and knew it’s what I wanted to do to this one.

I pieced three feathers using remnants of this pillow, and using a template I made by tracing the curvature of the shade, pieced turquoise sections to complete the circle. I stretched it over the old shade and using fabric glue, rolled the edges over the top and bottom. I spray painted the base a glossy white, and voila!IMG_0881

I love it!

    1. I’m in the process of manikg a full size nine-patch quilt for my daughter. My sisters (I have five) quilt, too. We love getting together to work on a quilt. Quilting is addictive, plus it makes for some great times with the sisters. Lots of laughs and lots of ideas come out.

  1. I’m obsessed with this! I would love to make a feather pillow for my bed. Did you use a tutorial? Do you think I could do it myself??
