Tank, rocking the Personal Flotation Device.
I had to drop some stuff off at Goodwill the other day and just as I got there, the bottom fell out. Rather than stand out in the rain getting my butt soaked while I strapped Tank back in his car seat, I decided to poke around. I happened upon this little (about 10" tall) lamp and thought it had potential.
I snagged it for a whopping $3.99
Important first step: make sure it works!
Next, tape up whatever you don't want painted:
Quick coat of primer (it dried amazingly fast in the hot sunshine!):
Then, a coat of color. And then a second coat of color!
Here's everything I used. I couldn't decide between the two appliques unti I saw them with the painted lamp base. They were each $3.49 at Joann's Fabrics. The lamp shade was $7.98 at WalMarxist. Already had the fabric fuse.
After holding both appliques up to the shade, I liked the bird better,
although both were cute.
So, here's the finished product. I have no idea what I'm going to do with it, but I just love the fun color!
We'll be loading up shortly and heading back to Gilligan's Island. Hope your weekend was great!
