DIY Action Figure Lamp

DIY lamp full_edited-3If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that I've been busy soaking in all things baby. But I wanted to take a little time to share with you the DIY lamp project I worked on for my boys' bedroom. You may recall that I am in the process of decorating my new home. Things have been hectic, and the decorating continues to progress slowly. So you can imagine that I'm elated when I finally get to complete a project. Inspiration lamp 1_edited-2

Here is my inspiration lamp. You may remember seeing it on my boys' bedroom moodboard? It's a piece designed by Evil Robot Designs. And while it is soooo cool, it is also soooo pricey at $926.00. So I figured I'd make one of my own for the cost of next to nothing. Here's how I did we did it (that is, my husband and I).
