Painted lamp-shade


I wish I could remember how old M was when she did this project… probably around three years old given the style of the person she painted.

I have a bunch of IKEA table lamps scattered around the house. Somehow, I ended up with an extra lamp-shade. On a rainy weekend afternoon I set M up with the tempera paints and some brushes & let her do her thing. I liked the result so much I put this one in my bedroom so I could see it every evening. It casts a lovely glow in the room.
