Get Lit

During my daily perusing of the design blogs, I came across this post about Lit shades featuring lampshades lined with our (now discontinued - get it while it lasts!) Silhouette wallpaper on design*sponge. Christiana and I have been focusing a lot of efforts on DIY items for various projects and lampshades are always on the list, but have not actually been attempted yet.

Wallpaper can serve as a subtle accent when placed on the inside of the shade or a bold graphic statement when on the outside.

Lit is also using the wall stickers on lampshades which is a quick and easy way to perk up a simple pendant drum or...

add a little charm to a nightstand lamp. Remember how I mentioned easy? In less than 5 minutes, I ran upstairs, put the sticker in the inside of the lampshade, took a photo and voila!

Just in case we've stirred your creative juices, here are some inexpensive lamps that are just begging for some ferm LIVING. Keep in mind that Collection 1 wallpapers are on sale for only $30 a roll - perfect for a DIY budget. But if this seems like too much heavy lifting, just contact the talented folks at Lit
and we're sure they'd be happy to help you!
