IKEA lampshade hack.

Here's a little fun post for you. A little bit of upcycling done to an old lamp and IKEA's lamp shade.

An old lamp!

Spray primer on first. Then any choice of color of spray paint. I chose yellow.

Got lamp shade from IKEA and used glue gun to glue flowers pattern with fabric. 

After about 6 hours of this "fun" got myself a really cute lamp for my side of the bed.
Here it is with light on.

Lights off.

Enjoy Before and After

McQueen no more!

It has been forever since I've posted anything. So here it goes!  I got this little freebie a while back and it was just sitting there in the garage collecting dust.
This one really needed saving because old vinyl has ripped and I figured why not turn into something more comfy. I decide to spray paint legs with turquoise color because Alyonushka's room has sort of a theme of turquoise and black colors going on. (Don't mind the mess in the background)
I started by removing old vinyl and replacing it with new foam. But with this one I wanted the back of the chair to have nice curvy back.

I just traces old foam to the new one, sprayed with glue and attached it to the back and then staples the whole thing with fabric of my choice.

Then I repeated same step to the remaining two front sides. 

And for the final touches I've hot glued the trim and ta-da!
Now my 2 year old has cute little comfy vanity chair for her room. 

Here's a little recap

Thanks for visiting!
