I have had such a blast working with Plaid this year! It’s been so fun working with different projects and materials and it’s been so great getting to know all the other Plaid creators and the team at Plaid. Earlier in the year, all the Plaid Creators met up at Plaid Headquarters for planning and creating and all sorts of fun and while we were there we decided to work together on a giant diy family room decor collaboration!
It was kind of amazing how well everything came together! We had 9 different designers and styles and we had to plan a lot of the room virtually, but it all worked out so great. We used an big variety of different Plaid products too!
So let me show you around the room a bit!
All so amazing right?? One of my contributions to the room with this fun Stenciled Lamp Redo! Let me give you a quick tutorial – it’s super easy to do!
To make your own you’ll need:
- A tripod lamp – I found mine at Target
- Titanium White FolkArt Acrylic Paint
- Fresh Foliage FolkArt Acrylic Paint
- Backgrounds FolkArt Stencil
- FolkArt Brushes
- painters tape
Here’s the lamp I started with – pretty but plain too!
Measure up the same distance on the legs of the lamp. Tape off the legs.
Paint the bottom portion of the legs until they are all covered.
While the legs are drying, get the stencil ready. Using the arrow stencil, pop out all the stencil sections that cover the size of the lampshade. Cover some of the open sections with tape.
Tape the stencil to the lampshade and stencil the open sections carefully.
When you’ve filled the stencil, mark the space between sections and move the stencil over.
Keep going until you’ve covered the entire lampshade.
Remove all the tape from the bottom of the legs and you’re all done!
One of the best parts of the Blogger Collab room is the gallery wall! We each made a piece and I love how they all look together!
My piece in the gallery wall was this “Home” stitchery on this linen Bucilla canvas!
You can find the pattern for it here!
Make sure you head over to the Plaid blog for links to all the projects and more info on who made what!
Wow! What an incredible project to do together. :) And the contest?! So cool. Thanks for sharing this, Bev! :)
