This little project can be done by anyone. It’s a great way to store and display earrings. No more looking for lost earrings! You can see at a glance what you have. I’ve also put pins higher up on the shade. Wouldn’t it look great filled in with misc. jewelry. Maybe I ought to display Claudia’s pins on it.
I loved the lamp for the detail. I knew when it was distressed that detail would pop.
The lamp isn’t tall. It’s just the right size for a bedroom or even a bathroom counter top.
Opps! No pictures of the base coat. I used Country White, two coats. Then I put a distressing glaze on it.
I took a large needle, maybe a tapestry needle, and poked holes around the edge of the shade. I made some of them further apart for bigger earrings.
Then just attach your earrings. Even if you don’t like the earrings to wear, they make a great fringe on the shade. The more colorful the earrings, the more colorful the “fringe”.
Have a great weekend. See you next week at all the wonderful link parties. Can’t wait to see what yall have made.
