A while back, my Father In-law gave me a white Ikea lamp that someone had given him...I wasnt sure what to do with it, so it sat in my spare room for a while...I couldn't figure out what to do with it.This is where Facebook comes in. I posted about said lamp, and asked if anyone had any suggestions. And withthe help of a friend, I found the perfect solution.
Here is that solution:
Now that we've established the finished product, lets get to how I got to it.
It all started with this lamp....
Then I tore some pages out of a trashy romance novel that I had....I honestly dont even remember the name of the book!! Then I burnt the edges of the pages with a lighter that I had to steal from my husband - ninja style - Or um, I asked him....he said yes.
After I burnt the edges, I soaked the pages in some water I had some black paint mixed into...to give it a darker 'antique' look. Then layed them out on drying racks to dry up. It took about 30 mins for the pages to dry totally.
