There are 4 key areas of change to Braeden’s bedroom:
- His dresser, turned into a bench,
- the locker wall,
- the bed wall,
- and, the closet!
While I’m painting “lockers,” let me share this other little project—
I found a hotel/motel styled swing arm lamp (that would be mounted between the two beds, even has a plug-in), and altered it to go beside his bed.
I found it at the ReStore for $5!
I’ve been sitting on the finished lamp until I show you the completed bed wall, B U T—
- It was that ugly “brass” finish, so I used some Rust O leum hand hammered spray paint.
- Instead of standard lamp shades–let’s do something wAy more fUn!
- I bought a vintage globe in the flea market–I think I paid about $7. I cut it in half, painted the inside a watery blue, trimmed the raw edges—
–et voilà, lamp shades!
And I topped them with vintage finials!
It was interesting to take the globe apart and get to see how they actually make these things!
I have a sUper cool surprise of a headboard—
Braeden has NO IDEA,
and I can’t wait to finish it and share it with you!
It took quite a bit of sourcing for THIS idea, and it may very well
knock your socks off!
**If you go to this more recent post, you’ll find info on how to cut your globe!
I’m sharing this lighting project with these favorite linky parties!
