I used the tutorials HERE as a starting point for my inspiration and this is the end result
His & Hers lamps for the kids rooms! Jackson's theme is dinosaurs and Maggie's is birds.
How I did HIS:
I removed the outside fabric of the shade and used it to trace the proper shape onto grey fabric. Once I had my fabric cut out I stenciled a "j" onto the fabric and free hand painted the dinosaur. After letting the paint dry I then hot glued the fabric onto the frame, pulling as tightly as I could. I finished it off by coating the whole thing in Mod Podge I felt it protected the fabric a little better and would be easier to clean. I also felt like it helped tighten up any loose patches once the Mod Podge dried and shrank the fabric. I then hot glued a little piece of ribbon in the inside to cover my seams.
I may decide to paint the base red in the future but for now I like the blue.

How I did HERS:
I removed all of the fabric from the shade and wrapped the top and bottom rings in sisal, using hot glue to secure it in place. I then wrapped the entire shade horizontally in sisal again using hot glue to secure it in place. The sisal gave it the nature feel that her decorations have but I also wanted to give it a little birdie so I cut out a tiny bird shape from fabric, sewed it and stuffed it and hung it from a chain to create a faux lamp chain look.

Hope you feel inspired to do your own lamp makeover.
It feels good to have them finished and it really ads a little something special to their room.
