Coming Soon - Pottery Barn Kids Lamp Knock Off Tutorial!


I'm deep into decorating baby B's room and while researching a lamp for her nightstand I fell IN LOVE with this pink rosette Pottery Barn Kids lamp.


But $148??!! Really, I mean really?
I visited my local Goodwill determined to create a knock off of this fab lamp.

I ended up walking out with a beautiful base and a shade that needed a lotta work for $3.54!


Like I said the base was pretty but the shade.. needed help.


After a lot of rosette making I came up with this...LOVE!!! I actually loved the brown base but since it was for baby B's room I needed to girly it up even more.


I painted the base pink first then an off white and then the distressing began. I love how the pink shows through with just a smidge of the chocolate.


Umm, yeah:)
I like it even better than the PBK's lamp!!
A full tutorial on this lamp will be posted soon!
