diy {vintage hat box lampshade}


Ingenius, no? I’ve been trying to figure out how I want to incorporate some low lighting around the house (and at the wedding reception), and keep seeing unappealing lamps at the thrift stores in which I love to waste time.  This idea is easy, quick, and I’m hoping inexpensive.  Hat boxes are so easy to find!  Find the entire tutorial here.

Love the idea of filling it with adorable gifts specifically chosen for the lucky recipient, and their interests.  Be it cook, gardner, teacher, book enthusiastic, or whatever, the ideas are endless……
