Our oldest boy turned five today and he LOVES Star Wars so I made him a Darth Vader lamp to go in his bedroom.
I got this lamp from a lady I purchased a dresser from, we were just finishing up loading the dresser in the back of the van when she says “yeah, do you want this lamp too?” I looked at it and thought, ummmm NO! It smelled horrid and it looked like
the 80’s had a little too much fun
with the 70’s and produced
this lamp. See what I mean?
But I took it as not to hurt her feelings and I thought I might be able to do something with it.
So I got some new plastic because the old plastic smelled.
I used the old plastic as a pattern
Okay now doesn’t this lamp shade look cool like this? I need to find another lamp ASAP! So cute.
I used spray adhesive to cover all the panels with black material.
While I was working on the shade my hubby pained the bottom part black.
I used hot glue and double fold bias tape to put it all back together.
SEE LOOK HOW COOL IT LOOKS WITH THAT NEW PLASTIC. I SERIOUSLY NEED ANOTHER LAMP TO REDO ASAP.
Then I added a simple cape.
I added a Darth Vader mask I got off a Halloween costume that I just happened to get on clearance for $ 3.00.
All done! He loves it, I just hope it doesn’t give him nightmares.
AFTER so much better!
