Before I reveal my Hollywood Regency Bedroom, I want to show you a couple small transformations I've done for the room......First up.... Making a lampshade out of a hatbox
(You must use an LED lightbulb with a cardboard lampshade)
I found this great hatbox at Home Goods.....
......for $6.99. It was just the right color and look I wanted for the bedroom
For the heck of it I put it on one of my lamps and....Eureka...It looked pretty good!
So....I glued the lid on and cut out the bottom of the box
Then cut a hole in the top for the crystal finial
Important....YOU MUST USE AN LED LIGHTBULB....OR YOU WILL BURN YOUR HOUSE DOWN!!!! LEDs never get hot and are cool to the touch even after being on for hours. This allows it to be used with a cardboard shade.
Think of all the possibilities for using vintage hatboxes as lampshades
More to come!
Hum...think I should find a picture to put in the frame?
