How about a light saber lamp?
Another simple, inexpensive DIY project for the baby’s nursery. The light saber hilt is from my husband’s collection — just a cheapie plastic model. The lamp base is IKEA’s Hemma and the shade is Jara. Total cost? Just under $15.
This is my favorite kind of project: it doesn’t scream ‘STAR WARS’ on first look, but instead is a more of a subtle nod to the Jedi’s weapon of choice.
Want to make your own? Geek Crafts has a great tutorial on making one yourself. We used it mostly for inspiration and kinda winged the assembly.
In other news, I’ve finally settled on a fabric for the remaining big projects in the room. Current plan is for floor length curtains to replace the closet door, a roman shade for the window, and a simple pleated crib skirt.
The print is ‘Constellation’ by Lizzy House. Isn’t is cute? It’s so new that it hasn’t even been released yet. I can’t wait to get my hot little hands on it. There will be some furious sewing going on in early December so that everything is ready for the bambino’s arrival.
