Girls Ruffled Skirt ~ Turned Lampshade

Happy Monday to all my blogging friends :) This morning while out running some errands, I stopped at my local Goodwill store, and found this lamp base and shade, and knew exactly what I was going to do with it! The base was black, but I painted it this nice crisp white, and I had this GORGEOUS girls skirt with all these wonderful ruffles (and it's pink!!), and placed it over the lampshade, and tah dah!! Brand new Lamp & shade! I got this idea from a previous post that Christie Repasy did, and HAD to make one of my own :) Tanza also did a post with a cute one she did too.


Just look at all the sweet little ruffles done on this skirt! There are even pink and white little ribbon roses adorning it too! Fabulous!!


I added a cute bouquet of Vintage lace, Vintage pink ribbon bow, and the best part, this Vintage pink rose Millinery! Now this shade is Romantic and oh-so chic!


This is a simple and easy to do project, and will turn ANY ordinary lamp into something FABULOUS!!

Brenda, this is absolutely gorgeous. Oh, it makes me want to do a lampshade. I used to apply roses to just about all my lampshades. Thanks for the inspiration.

You are one talented gal.

I am in love with your lamp shade!! Now I never would have thought to have used a little girls skirt for something like this!! Next time I am off thrifting I will have to browse the little girl racks!!

Such a precious lamp!

I really think this is such a pretty way to dress up a plain lampshade. Looks like a millon bucks.
