However i still want to show you where the lamp started and how it ended up.
Here is a teaser of where i had begun to take how to pics. I used the leftover map piece and Mod Podge to seal the map to the generic, plain, gross, off white lamp shade. I first painted a coat of Mod Podge on the shade and used bull dog clips to help keep the map in place as i wrapped it around the shade. Once the map was wrapped all the way around i brushed on another coat of Mod Podge and let it dry.
I moved the Map Lamp to my orange nightstand so it would stand out and not blend in with the desk.
I love that it coordinates with the color scheme of the rest of my bedroom, and the blue i used to paint the base was left over from when i painted my bathroom- which can be seen in THIS POST
