I hope you’re having a good week thus far. Today I will answer a question I received from several of you about the lamp in our master bedroom. I love when I get asked something from you, because then I have an idea of what you like to see! So never hesitate to leave a comment or question. I love hearing from you.
Today is the day we taking a closer look at the vintage paper lamp many of you liked seeing on Instagram. If you decide to style a shade similarly please share it with me! You can email via our blog “Sharing at the Farm Table” tab or tag me on IG @thewhitebarnfarm. I’d love to see your creations! Here is our lamp and a few ideas of what you can do to create one similarly…
To DIY; simply gather some vintage books and carefully remove pages. Or find some poetry, pictures, or newspapers online and print to desired size. You can use a tea-bag bath to give the appearance of time-worn pages. You’ll also need to purchase a lamp base and a wire shade (no fabric attached), as well as some small clips to attach as shown above. Mine are a vintage cream color, but you could get any color desired for your design preference. That’s it! You can do it!
Simple and lovely.
The lamp gives off a really nice soft glow. We also have our headboard barn fixtures for additional light as needed when reading at night. I love to have the lamp and chandelier on a dimmer switch for a warm welcome into our room each evening.
Thanks for coming by The White Barn Farm, I hope you gained some new ideas to make your next DIY project come to life! Bless your home as you keep aspiring to flourish in the heart and home.
