When I first saw this vintage drum lamp shade at a flea market in Oklahoma City I wasn't sure if I wanted to turn it into a mobile or a fun photo display but then realized it could serve a practical purpose instead! I used four strands of white wire Christmas lights that I carefully wrapped around the lamp frame and then attached two plant hooks into the ceiling to hang it over our new bed. It's large scale makes it perfect as a focal point in our room and the glow of the light is absolutely beautiful after dark!
You can still join us for Project ReStyle, find details here. I've really been enjoying the variety of ideas and ReStyles that are being shared in our Flickr group!
To celebrate 1/11/11 we built a bed fort with a few of my favorite vintage sheets and a random old curtain panel. We read books and had a tickle fight and took some funny Instax photos to mark the occasion!
