As you may have heard, one if this year’s trend colors is Pantone Rose Quartz and thus, OTTO and I wanted to create a project in this color.
So in this blogpost, you’ll be seeing how to make a pretty geometrical lampshade with paper. Let’s go:
My new white Nightstands:
When we started our current cooperation project, I was allowed to choose several pieces of furniture like two bright yellow chairs, a chest of drawers and also new white nightstands which I built together myself with the help of my boyfriend to make it even more fun.
For several years, I have been owning a set of nightstands which I didn’t like anymore. But because they were still in an acceptable condition, I kept them. Now for this project, I finally decided on a pair of bright new white nightstands with three drawers each.
Because I didn’t like the metallic knobs, I bought myself some wooden ones.
Using spray paint, I turned them white so that they fit the overall look of the nightstands and I used them as a substitute for the silver metal ones.
So much better with the new knobs so that it fits my taste and style. Now as the nightstands are ready, on to the the next step: the DIY project for geometrical paper bedside lampshades:
Make Your own Geometrical Paper Bedside Lampshades:
What you need:
– A pair of lampshade frameworks
– Rose-colored thin cardboard or thick paper
– Scissors, double-sided tape, measuring tape, a pencil
– A rolling cutter (optional)
Measure the height of your lampshade frameworks. Mine are 20cm high.
Next, mark the hight on paper / cardboard and add 5 additional centimeters for later folding over the endings.
In my case, I thus marked and cut paper stripes which are 25cm long and 1cm wide.
Next, take your double-sided tape and put pieces to the endings of the stripes.
Use the taped endings to attach the paper or cardboard stripes to the framework.
When you are done, use scissors to neatly cut off the edges.
