Swoon-Worthy Lamps

Welcome to the LAMP Categorically Crafting Show where you can show off the projects, ideas, traditions and tips you use for lamps. Dig through your archives or link a recent post. Share your lamps, and lamp shades with us. Here are a few that I've found floating out there!

Learn how to make this PB Knock-off with The Thriftress!
Go HERE to learn how to make your own teacup lamp.

This is a lamp revamp I did! I turned brass and that boring 70's lampshade into chocolate and burlap. See how I did it HERE.

Dress up an old lampshade by adding some fancy lace and beautiful buttons. See how Make Mine Beautiful created this by going HERE.

If ruffles are your thing, then this ruffle lampshade is for you! The best part about how it is made is that you can take the ruffles off whenever you don't want them. They're not glued or sewn onto the shade!!! Check it out at Sunny Tuesday. Go HERE.

Change your lampshades to have a crisp pleated look. Don't you like this look? This would look great on a throw pillow too! See how to make it at Burlap and Blue. Go HERE.

This lamp would look great anywhere in my house. I love this creation by Creations By Kara.
See how this canvas lampshade was made.

Billie Monster added some color to a boring brass lamp.

See this summer lamp makeover HERE.

Also, if you need more ideas, click over to my archives. See the lamp categories!

Please join your crafty post if, and only if, it corresponds with the category and theme of Lamps. (If it doesn't fit in this category, please link it up to Whatever Goes Wednesday.) Link up crafts, decor, sewing projects, food, tips, etc, that has to do with LAMP. If you have joined a LAMP project to a party on my blog before, feel free to add it to this show too! If you have a lot of mirror projects, please choose your favorites. (Please no more than 4 posts per blog). Link to the specific posts, not to your main blog page.

Let's see what you have created (either recently or in the past)!

You can paste the "Categorically Crafting" button onto your blog post. I would love to see these floating around so more people can post their themed projects. I will leave this linky post open until next CC Show. Keep checking back for more ideas!!!
The next 3 Categorically Crafting Shows are as follows:

September 3 - Toy Rooms
September 10 - Boys
September 17 - Dollar Store Crafts

(If you haven't gone back to see last week's Beach show, you must see the rest of the ideas linked up throughout the week. They rock! See them HERE.)
