The lamp does look really nice..(okay--that is my opinion, it was really ugly in pink). I am too cheap. I can't buy something new if I can recycle/re-purpose something I have on hand.
I'm bad that way. didn't take a before pic--but it was pink and the shade was pink. I'll probably go and get a white shade for it, but it is way too hot to go shopping.

That looks fabulous CWS...it really does!

I love the shade of blue you have chosen and the effect you have done on the base...well done

Just wanted to show off the " Princess Castle play tent that I made for my granddaughters for Christmas. Finally got to see them as they were all sick with Norovirus over the holidays.

Very cool and good job. Did you have a pattern or did you just make it up yourself?

Thanks Taxlady, I looked at a tutorial online , I used her method for figuring out how to do the top, the rest I just "winged" by looking at pictures of store bought ones, the tutorial featured a nice but very simple tent , I wanted this one to be a little more "snazzy" ;)

Well, you certainly got snazzy. Very creative.

DD and I are hoping that it will grow with them and become a "reading nook" the pockets are great for tucking books into. Thanks so much for the praise. :)
