Do it Yourself [#2]: Earring Holder

 I've always loved making, recycling things, and I thought it would be awesome to share some of my do it yourself projects, past and present, with you! 

There was a vintage, lop sided lamp taking up space in our bedroom, that only works when it wants to...
I've been thinking about recycling it for a couple days, but didn't know how...until one day I saw the huge bag of earrings that I had made!! Tah-dah, my EUREKA moment, I decided to make it into an earring display/holder. No, unfortunately,  the one pictured above is not the one I made; that's actually a functioning lamp and I just added the earrings onto it, via photshop, but I bet I can try to make one like that for next time! Hehehe. The one I made is pictured below :)
This do it yourself is SUPER EASY...
You will need:
  1. Lamp Shade
  2. Acrylic paint
  3. Paint brush
Step 1: You should probably dust the lamp shade off before you start...

2: Plan your color scheme before you start painting. I just went with the flow, and did whatever. But, now that I think of it, pastel colours would have been rad, since pastel is "in" right now, hehehe. Oh well, pa la proxima! Or maybe I can paint over it later...

Step 3: Let paint dry

Step 4: Put earrings on display :) You can also use it to hang your I'm doing! So it has double use..

You can choose to keep your lamp shade on its base, or even take it off and place the shade on a counter on its own. I've done both, and prefer it on its base because you can rotate it :)

So whatta'ya think? Yay or nay?
