French Lamp

I love when things come together smoothly!

I had a tan oval lampshade that was boring but I loved the shape of it. Sometimes in my travels I buy things for "someday". You know "someday" don't you?

"Someday" can get you in trouble when it gets out of hand. "Someday" can also be your best friend!

I love when I forget about the little thing I bought and put away for a project. When I go searching for that one object that will be perfect for one of my creations and find it and it works....viola!

That's what I did with the lampshade. I put it away for "someday". Well "someday" is here.

I started with this:

Its a great shape, isn't it?

I added some fringe to it to spice it up.

I thought it was a little plain so I made a ribbon flower to attach to the front of the shade.

It's hard to tell the details in the picture. I then needed a base.
I found this adorable base of the Eiffel Tower. That's when my "someday" projects started.

It worked perfectly. It was just in need of a shade. 
The rest is history!

Love my little French lamp!
What "someday" project have you done today?

Thank you to The Design File for featuring my Audrey Hepburn Dresser!
