Lovely Lamp for my Dresser

This lamp belonged to my great grandmother. Then it hung around in our house I grew up in. Then it came into my possession…

Through all this I never remember this special class of kitsch ever having a lampshade, so I began regularly including the lampshade section whenever I wandered around opshops.

Eventually I found one that would suffice.

Now you might think we’re done here. That looks like a mighty fine match.

No. Nice lampshade made the base look respectable and that’s not what we want. We want over the top kitsch that not even a mother could love.

Queue hot glue and my fabric rose collection.

Lovely Lampshade: Ready for action

I’m not sure if we’ve improved this here but we’re certainly on a path. Never mind that I almost set it on fire.

Once it was in place and turned on I sat gawking at the girly-ness of my dresser for a good 15 minutes.
