One Unique Lamp

  As I am putting together an (hopefully) amazing vintage airplane themed bedroom for my son, I am avoiding the inevitable...choosing the wall color. 


I know I want a soft gray with blue undertones, but I am scared. I ALWAYS choose the wrong color. I think it will be perfect, I look at millions of samples, but it never fails that after I get it on the walls, I am not quite pleased with the results.

I keep finishing other projects to go in the room , but they would all be easier if the paint was up and I knew for sure the backdrop I was working with. So I MUST choose this week. If any of you have recommendations of a color you have used and REALLY LOVE, I would love to hear about it!

On to my accomplishments!

THE LAMP




Yippee! It worked. I used all those colorful, vintage looking luggage tags to cover the shade and it is so fun, original, and no doubt airplane themed!
Awesome deal and a perfect color combo for the room!




I printed a ton of the luggage tags and cut them all out





I protected the top half of my shade and sprayed adhesive on the lower half of the shade and the backs of all of the tags.







I arranged the first layer and then went around to fill in holes and add color where it was needed.






Originally I was going to keep the blue fabric on top, but it didn't look right.
So, I decided I had to do the top too.



I was really torn here, should I leave it as is, or Mod Podge it to protect it from dirty and rough little fingers? I also noticed some spots where the labels weren't sticking perfectly to the shade. I knew the Mod Podge would get everything adhered really well, so I went with it.



Just one thin layer looked perfect!




I finished it with a cutie little pewter airplane knob from Hobby Lobby where the star had originally been.





I have the bed, pillows, quilt, lamp, wreath....if I could just get the paint on the walls.....
AND, I am creating the BEST headboard in the history of the universe (well, my universe anyway), which I will share the minute it is finished!
