Storybook lampshade {win $100 certificate}

Lamps and light fixtures at Lamps.com
Wooo whoooo! I finally get to share the details of my lamp project today with all of you. Here's the scoop... I was asked to participate in a blogger DIY challenge hosted by lamps.com. The bloggers were asked to decorate a plain white shade to use in our own homes. All of the finished shades are looking quite stunning & are up on their blog waiting for you sweet peeps to go and vote. So here I am begging, pleading, and kissing babies so you guys will vote for me. By voting you not only help alittleglassbox to win, but if I win I get to give one of you guys an awesome $100 gift certificate to lamps.com. You are also entered for a second chance to win on their website when you cast your vote. So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make me look cool and go vote for my shade so we can all win the chance to get our hands on some prize certificates! By the way, I just also really want to feel cool. So help a gal out won't ya? And let me know what you think of Oliver's newest storybook lampshade. I figure every boy needs a little pirate ship & dragon action in his life.


I had so much fun mixing different patterns, colors, and textures to create this shade. I also glued decorative paper on the inside of the shade so it casts a sweet and soft pattern when the light is on. The little man loves it and I must say, I do too.

So get your cute booties over to lamps.com to vote for your favorite shade and for your chance to win some lamps.com loot. A huge shout out to lamps.com for asking me to participate. This was so much fun!

See you lovelies tomorrow!

  12. You guys are so amazing and so incredibly sweet. I love you ALL! I mean more than bacon or chocolate cake.
    Geesha yet again you CRACK ME UP!

    Erika- sweet thang...I used all sorts of different fabrics I had stashed away and used fabric glue to glue them on. I also used Mod Podge to glue on the decorative paper on the inside of the shade.

  13. I love all of the things you do. I had decided that for a contest to be REAL one should vote for the one that is the best regardless of whose it is. I looked at ALL of them and concluded yours WAS the best and voted for it! For me it was just as much about how you photographed it that drew me to selecting yours. I mention this because I know you said photography was one of your goals! Good work, Courtney!
