All images from *The Shabby Chic Cottage*

I recently found this fab tutorial over at *The Shabby Chic Cottage* about how to create a lamp and shade that looks very similar to a very expensive Pottery Barn lamp and shade. $159.00 expensive. Um. No, thank you. That is equivalent to most of my grocery budget for one month! Oh my!

She explains how she made this beautiful lamp and shade for about $10.00. Um. Yes, please! :) And, it's handmade! There's something about seeing a piece of furniture or decor item in your home or space that you've put time, effort, and love into. Head over here to check out her beautiful and inspiring blog and the tutorial.

Now, off to find a lamp and shade for this project! :) Have a great day!

  2. OH MY WORD. I am not brave enough to try this alone, but let's get small group ladies together one night and do it together!

  3. The links don't get me to the right places. Like the idea.
