Tutu Lampshade…a cute idea for a girls room

Last summer when we moved into our new house, our daughter’s room was painted pink with black trim

I decided to go the easy route and just keep the same theme.  Grandma got involved with the decorating and had the idea to cover a lampshade with a little tutu that we found at Ross or TJ Maxx (or some other store like that).  We bought a size 4 or 5 (make sure it will cover your lamp shade) and removed the tags.  Then we used a glue gun to attach the waistband of the tutu to the top of the lamp.  It worked great and my daughter loves her foofy lamp!

I see these tutus everywhere and there are all sorts of different colors/patterns…animal print, solid colors, polka dots, etc.  Choose whatever tutu you like and use it as decorating inspiration!  They are usually fairly inexpensive — probably under $10.  I used an old lamp that I already had so it was a project under $10!  Nice.



Living Room Decorating

Shortly after New Year's, my resolutioned spirits were high and I was ready for Project Living Room Decorating, a.k.a. Project PAINT. Because PAINT is the answer to every decorating dilemma.

It was time. The laundry was multiplying like moths trapped in a Cheerios bag. And if you've never seen that, it's a lot.
