quick valentine DIY

Simple message in the bedside lamp - this is perfect for a white or pale lampshade. I printed the words on transparent A4 printing sheets - the ones you use for overhead projectors.

Cut to size and sticky taped in...Remember to only do this with led low heat bulbs!
For heavier shades a stencil cut from baking paper seems to work.
And best of all - the message can't be seen when the lamp is off... 

.....so it's a romantic surprise when the lamp is switched on!

  2. Love it Julianne! Such an ace idea, and I do love the words 'quick' and 'DIY' in the same sentence. I guess it could read 'you turn me on' too.
    PS. Love your bedside table.
