Sprucing up the College Dorm!

We just got back from dropping Ashley off at College so there won’t be a huge before and after this week however come back tomorrow and I’ll post pictures from that chapter of our lives!!  Miss that girl already!

This post is about a small lamp we spruced up for her dorm. Remember me saying she is being very conservative when spending “her” money?? Well she had to buy a desk lamp but didn’t want to spend an arm and a leg to get a cute one. Those things are rather expensive!!

She opted to purchase a plain white one instead and have me fix it up according to her bedding. We chose a light gray to match her sheets and I used a Martha Stewart adhesive stencil my sister bought me!

And my child whom I spent 14 hours of labor for, leaving to her new Adventure!!  By the way she was my proof reader so if there’s misspellings, blame her for fleeing the coop!
