Land of Nod! Today is the second of our 2015 Knock Out Knock Off challenge and we are being inspired by one of the coolest stores, Land of Nod. I’ve been a huge fan for a while and today am excited to share my DIY Colorful Painted Lamp Shade inspired by one of their items.
You might be thinking, isn’t Land of Nod just a cool store for kids? Well, yes and no. They have stunning lamps, awesome artwork and amazing storage. I would furnish my entire house there if I could afford it. I actually pinned this Lamp Shade forever ago and when our knock out knock off challenge came up, I was thrilled to already know what I was going to make!
I already owned the white lamp base from Target. Then, I went to my local Goodwill and bought the white lamp shade for $7. However, if you were to buy these two items new it would still cost quite a bit less than Land of Nod’s $49 price.
This could not be an easier project. Color by color I added splots, lines and dots.
Sometimes it’s hard to be random and abstract but I had fun creating this whimsical pattern inspired by my Land of Nod shade.
I could not decide which lamp to put this on because it’s just so fun… so here are my two options!
Through August, we will be showcasing an inspired project from a pre-decided home decor store. Be sure to check out the other amazing projects and the projects from last month!
