Kid’s Bedroom 1 – Stage 4

I am obsessed with The Land of Nod Outlet in Naperville. If you live in the Chicagoland area, it is absolutely worth a trip. Great bargains abound, especially on furniture, which they will wrap and load into your car. (It’s located next door to the Crate and Barrel outlet so you can shop grown-up sales, too. Everybody wins.)

I found these lamps for super cheap at the outlet.


I wanted to do something fun with them, so I bought some navy and green ribbon to create a rugby stripe around the top and bottom of the shade.  (This was ultimately for a boy’s room, and I figured a rugby stripe is about as butch as a ribbon project can get.)


It was super easy, and I just used tape to secure it. Here was the result:


Fine, right? But ultimately just fine. It seemed too boring for an otherwise really fun room, so I abandoned that idea and found a chevron fabric in the same color scheme.

My mom used fabric spray on the shade and wrapped the fabric around, tucking the top and bottom into the inside of the shade.


The final result:


Much better.
