Lamp Shade Makeover + {$50} Cutting Edge Stencil Giveaway

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
I am in the process of giving my master bedroom a makeover....{pictures to come soon} And I have been searching high and low for the perfect lamp to complete my bedroom transformation. After shopping for countless hours over the span of multiple days, I came across this lamp base at Target. It was love at first sight! It was just what I had been looking for.... The only problem was that it didn't come with a lampshade. So I picked up a plain white drum lampshade and came home with my newly purchased items, antsy to see how they would look. 
Once I got it in the room, I knew that I had chosen the right lamp, but I felt like the lamp shade needed a little pizzaz. Turquoise Pizzaz, in fact. So I used the Casablanca craft sized stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils, mixed up my paint and got to stenciling.  
I was impressed with the stencil. I have stenciled other things before (when I was a teenager exploring my crafty side) and I have never gotten such great results. My three year old even walked in the room and told me she "loved that lamp"... I am so excited about the way that it turned out and the stencil really just helped give the lamp a finished look that I am lovin'!

Am I making you get the stenciling bug too??

If you have never stenciled before, no problemo... Cutting Edge Stencils has videos that will teach ya just what to do... here is an example:

  56. Aside from which, another valuable tip that you have to consider when looking for lamp shades would include the price. Remember, you can find great lamps without having to pay too much for them.
