Nursery Lamp

Here's one of my newest projects.  I started with this boring wooden lamp from a thrift store.  It was new and in good shape, but just lacked any character.

About a year ago, I had picked up a box of old greeting cards at a yard sale.  There were quite a few "Welcome New Baby" cards from the 50's and 60's.  They were still unused with the envelopes.  I decided that they would be perfect if decoupaged onto this lamp.

I had also found a glass lampshade at a junk shop.  It was in great shape, and ended up being the perfect topper for this lamp to complete the vintage feel.
