Stuck for kid’s bedroom ideas but want to make a space that’s colourful, creative and undeniably cool?
Look no further! Part 2 of our ‘Kid’s bedroom ideas’ shows you how to make a bright and colourful bedside lamp, on a budget! (See part 1 here).
1: To give the lamp base a bright, yet shabby chic finish I first painted the plain wooden base with grey chalk paint. I left that to dry, gave the base a second coat with red chalk paint then sanded areas back to reveal the grey in places.
4: For the lamp shade, give the fabric a good iron, removing any stray bits of thread, then lay out the Dannells lampshade kit components.
Lay your fabric face down and place the self adhesive panel on top, to check for size and positioning. Ensuring that the ‘top’ of your fabric will be at the top!
Peel back a little of the release paper on the panel, position sticky side on to the reverse of the fabric and bit by bit, remove the rest of the release paper so it sticks to the fabric, smoothing out from the middle as you pull. Turn over and smooth out again, removing any creases or air bubbles.
Snap back the scored edges on the panel and remove. Place a strip of double-sided tape on one short edge of the PVC. Set aside.
