Remember the Drum Light I made out of stuff I found around my house?
With our new baby coming, it's time to de-girlify his room/my office so we can eventually turn it into his nursery.
That pretty lamp got a make-over and became THIS:
I removed the floral fabric and replaced it with a funky patchwork of the same fabrics I will be using throughout his room. I also shortened it a bit by cutting the side wires shorter. Then added some equally funky ribbon trim to finish it off.

The room looks completely different from when I had my pretty lamp hanging up. The striped wall paper is gone and cantaloupe orange paint has taken it's place. I can't even begin to describe how much I love the color!
And did you notice the shelf?
I stripped the fabric off of my girly shelves and recovered them to match the room. Each shelf only took about 15 minutes to do! It's a simple way to hide an ugly shelf or add some extra color and texture to your room. See the Fabric Covered Shelf tutorial here to make one of your own.
