Marimekko lamp cover ~ a creative weekend


Well, apart from being a seriously busy weekend, a short BBQ event, a night out to see Hale and Pace at Twin Towns, where i almost split my sides with laughter, i have had time to cover my old lamp with some Mini Marimekko in the stunning blue/white colourway.

I must say im really pleaseed with the result. We had deocorated a while back and as usual I never get round to finishing what I start. So for some reason, this weekend was the one.

It was so easy to do and didnt take more than about 45 mins from beginning to end. Well had to pop to Bunnings of course to get some PVA glue, as the kiddies had some how used all the previous 2 litre bottle I was secretly hiding for a rainy day.

I cut and measured and rolled the drum over the fabric and glued on the inside flap and hey, a new lap. Quite pleased with it I must say.

All I need now is a canvas and some cushions to match and a new sofa, and nice new shiney rug and..............................................................................................

Have a fabulous creative week.

That looks fantastic, LOVE that fabric! I've had recovering a lampshade on my project list for ages, thanks for just the inspiration I needed to move it up the list!
