DIY Floral + Ruffle Lamp Shade

One of my favorite crafts to create in a bedroom makeover is a lamp makeover. It’s so easy to find a cheap, bland lamp base and shade and add some embellishments to make them match your décor.

Plutonium Spray Painted Crystal Vase

So on Monday I showed you guys Ellie’s “temporary” bedroom makeover at my brother’s house, now I’ll be showing you guys some of the fun DIY projects that went along with it! First up… a fun tin vase makeover.

painted tin vaseI actually found this gray tin vase at HomeGoods in the clearance section for $3. I wanted something tall for on top of her toy organizer, but it wasn’t the right color. So in came Plutonium Spray Paint.
