From Pinterest To Real Life – February

So, I have been super excited to start doing this! My first Pinterest to Real Life post! ๐Ÿ™‚

This month I actually only have 1 thing to share that I did though, but I will work on more things for the coming months! I plan to do a “From Pinterest To Real Life” post on the last Sunday of every month! ๐Ÿ™‚

Pinterest Button Covered Lamp Shade

For this month, I seen this button covered lamp shade and said “Oh! I need to do that!”

Well, then I realized I didn’t have a lamp shade, or even a good lamp for that matter! No problem, my husband said we needed more lighting in the house anyways.

Off to the store we went. Found a lamp and purchased it just for this project!

Then I went on Etsy and bought some lovely buttons from some wonderful Etsy shops.

So, the original lamp the way it is, it’s quite cute. It has a monkey, and will be perfect for my work area since I love the color green. However, I had my idea in my head still, and my lovely buttons sitting at my house waiting for a lamp shade.

The Lamp in it’s Original State

The End Result!
Button Covered Lamp Shade - DIY - Include the Kids

(Don’t mind the horrible lighting, this is a regular bulb – it definitely needs a Daylight bulb!)

  1. Oh my gosh! That is awesome. I have a bit of a button collection that I could do this with and stop my husband complaining about all the buttons in jars at the same time! Super!
