I love lamps! I think they add such warmth and comfort to a room, so naturally I had to put one in Ryker’s nursery, and since I couldn’t seem to find anything I liked in the retail industry, I went with my fallback these days: DIY.
I’m calling it the ABC Block lamp. It’s a combination of the fabrics used on the crib bumper.
I was trying to pull more ABC into the room, while also adding more the different colors in the fabrics.
I had this lamp on hand from my oldest daughter’s nursery.
I pried off the chipboard butterflies and ladybugs and took the entire lamp apart. You can easily make this lamp as well with a lamp rod, lamp kit (sold at Wal-Mart for about $6), a wooden base, and 3 wooden blocks.
Then spray painted the base and blocks Krylon Almond.
Next I used my ever-fabulous Silhouette to cut out the vinyl for the blocks.
I was able to find the vinyl at my local Roberts Crafts. They have a great selection of colors!
Oh and see that cute way to decorate the wipes case? That fantastic idea came from Miss Ellie G of Less Cake More Frosting. (A must-read BTW. It’s one of those blogs that I read EVERY.SINGLE.WORD. Love it!).
One project closer to room completion. “I think I can, I think I can…..”
