An En-Lightening Project that's Music to My Ears!February 3rd, 2009 in projects
I purchased this trumpet quite awhile a go, intending to make it into a lamp. I thought this was the perfect project for it! I knew I wanted to use the paper from the piano roll to decopage onto the shade. The problem was I couldn't find a barrel shade that would be easy to just wrap the paper around it. I ended up cutting them down in strips. At the top and bottom of the shade I found the perfect ribbon for it and simply hot glued it on. I think it gives it really a vintage feel. I then added the crystal and keys to the bottom.
For the trumpet, it was pretty easy to transform it into a lamp. I simply drilled a hole into the top of it and ran the light kit through the base of the trumpet. I then attached it to a piece of wood that was mitered, painted and polyd.
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
