Swedish Makeover

The shape of this simple Ikea lamp lends itself perfectly embellishing and personalizing.  We have gone all sorts of different routes with the decorating of this baby from patchwork to polka dots.

I thought it would be cool to take a different approach and with the help of our new intern Sophie we set about making a template to incorporate photography into the mix.  After making and cutting our template we printed an image and phrase on our favorite photo paper. Just print and peel off backing.

We sewed together the 3 sections and finished off the edges with bias tape.  The result is a pretty darn cool lamp that is as personal as you can get.

One could go crazy with all sorts of combinations of photos and fabric.  Possibilities. Endless. Yup!
