DIY – Painter Pen Doodle Lamp Base, Pinterest Inspired

Happy Valentines Day everyone!  Heart hugs to each of you!  I’m continuing my quest to fulfill one of my New Year goals.  That is to execute on something I pin in Pinterest.  I swear, I’m addicted , obsessed and obsessed with Pinterest!  It’s like going grocery shopping when I’m hungry.  I can’t get enough.

I picked up this plain boring little lamp at Target on clearance months ago. Black base, off white shade, less than $10.00.  I shoved it in a closet and found it Sunday when I was looking for something else.  Here’s the before and after.010-1

I was inspired by a pic I pinned on Pinterest…

It was so easy and fun to do. Plus I love the black and white.  BGH used a sharpie, I used a white painter pen.  The great thing is your doodles don’t have to be perfect/  I also added some rows of black ribbon to the lampshade.  Here’s some before and after pics.
