Lamp Shades to Match your décor

I really needed some Paris script square lampshades for some square lamps –  ok, need is a bit strong – maybe really really really really really wanted. Can you believe no one sells them? So, I made my own!

I took a picture of my Paris script stools.  I fit the print to regular sized computer paper and printed one page for each side. Add Mod Podge and Voila! I planned to add black lace around the edges, but I think I have decided that I like the raw/rough look better

More detailed directions for using Mod Podge are under the post: Lazy Susan

All of these projects used the same kind of Mod Podge, brushed on with a foam brush, and regular computer paper.

The projects below used old pictures (from like the 80s) that no longer matched our décor. I added some family pics that were printed off the computer and some old leftover curtain rod hooks.

Voila!

New key rack for the door by the garage and except for a lil mod podge, some paper, and some ink ~ it was free. I love free 🙂 Same idea for the No Soliciting sign..

Lazy Susan

I had a lazy Susan that was given to me years ago by my daughter.

It was from when my kitchen decor was beechwood.

Problem: I couldn’t bring myself to part with it. My kitchen is now stainless and black with a French Country/Paris Theme – water-ringed, stained beechwood just didn’t match.

I took a picture of one of my Paris postscript stools, and printed out several pages on regular computer paper.

Enter Mod Podge glossy glue.

I put down a coat of Mod Podge Glue using a foam brush, overlapped the pages on to the lazy Susan and put Mod Podge over the paper, using an old credit card to smooth out the bubbles.

Once dry, I flipped the lazy Susan over and used an exacto knife to cut off excess paper around the edges.

After it dried, I put another coat on as I wanted it be really durable for kitchen use.
