I’ve got to be honest with y’all, in the beginning I just wasn’t catching on to the whole wash tape fad. Then one morning, all of a sudden, I felt I had to go out & start a wash tape collection. That’s exactly what I did too. True story. Since then, I love it! You can add it to literally anything for extra pizzaz & it’s not sticky enough to ruin anything. Versatility is definitely a plus.
My biggest project using washi tape so far is this classy striped lamp. I’m hoping to show some more glimpses of my studio soon. It’s going to be a work in progress as far as things like paint & curtains go, but it’s coming together. It’s all black & white & gold. No surprise there!
Anyhow, I bought the lamp base at Target for a steal! It was originally $55 & marked down to $16. It just needed a shade.
So I bought a plain white lamp shade at Home Depot & pulled out some black washi tape.
I started rolling the tape around the very middle.
Then I used small strips to space out stripes somewhat evenly. Be warned, there’s most likely going to be an “ugly side” where the seams of the tape meet up & bubble a little.
Then finish it all the way around…I totally did this project in bed one night, hence the fluffy white blanket backdrop. But that just goes to show just how easy it is.
The finished product! Don’t you love the pitcher from the Oh Joy Target collection too? I’d passed it up for weeks before finally getting it, so happy I finally did! They’ll be the best of friends.
Here it is turned on in it’s natural environment. Check out last week’s post for the free Taylor Swift printables seen above & a quick clipboard DIY!
