but it did involve playing with fabric! I updated my daughter’s lamp to better reflect her current tastes in colour. When she was 4 years old, and for several years after, she was all about pink – the cotton candy, bubble gum pink variety. In the last year or so she has shifted to more vibrant colours.
Back in the mists of time when this lamp was in my room it had a green base like you see at left, and a plain white shade. There were twin lamps. 6 years ago one was adorned with green trim and bright buttons for my son’s room, and the other with the requested pink and flowers.
Yesterday I spent a lot longer than I expected changing the pink to blue. Son is still happy with the green.
My daughter chose the fabric. While I loved it, I was a bit skeptical about how it would look as bias binding wrapped around and around. I stand corrected. My daughter “did good”!
