Posts Tagged ‘vitage globes’

There are 4 key areas of change to Braeden’s bedroom:

  1. His dresser, turned into a bench,
  2. the locker  wall,
  3. the bed  wall,
  4. 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!

I’m sharing this lighting project with these favorite linky parties!
