I love guest bloggers, and I’m so glad you to Natalie, The Creative mother and your DIY lamp socket, and Cabinet. You will surely love your budget-friendly and renovated! Check out their tutorials below.

Hey there! I’m Natalie, and I blog about The Creative Mama. I'm so excited to be guest posting on Mod the hodgepodge of rocks. Amy is so talented and creative and it really is an honor to be here.
Today I’ I;m going to share with you how I decoupaged my TV Cabinet and my lamp. I have both of the yard sales in the not-so-perfect condition, but with a little TLC, turned out perfect!

DIY lamp base
Here’s what you’ll will need for both projects, and I’ll show you what to do with the lamp base first.

I’ll show you how I created my first lamp. It started as an ugly old $2.00 lamp.
The first thing you will do is spread a good amount of Mod smorgasbord on the lamp.
Then you take your fabric and began wrapping it around the lamp. I had no idea how much fabric I needed, so I just cut it about 4 inches larger than the lamp and 4 inches longer than the lamp. I had to cut some off at the end, but it’s better to have extra than not enough.
to do When you’re like this, make sure to STRETCH. On the tapered parts of the lamp, you’ll need to fold your fabric. That’s, why to use it’s best is fabric instead of paper, because you can stretch and wrinkle the fabric.
It really won’t stay until it dries, so I have a rubber band to hold the conical part of the fabric.
Spread a good layer of Mod smorgasbord on the upper side of the fabric.
And, as I said, to fold you’ll have to and stretch. The more curvature you have to do in your lamp, the more you’ll have to do this.
Then I took a knife {you could use an X-Acto knife} to cut off the excess. I've actually marked it with a pen before I cut.
I didn’t get pictures, but I wrapped some ribbon around the tapered parts and the bottom and secured it with hot glue. To complete your DIY lamp base.
I did this because the conical parts were’t perfect, and I cut it a little uneven on the bottom, so I wanted to hide the imperfections. The finished product: Now, here’s how I set up my TV Cabinet. It’s pretty simple.
TV Cabinet Makeover
Here is the best before picture I have: I know, what kind of blogger doesn’t have before pictures? But this way you get to see my sweet little boy.
The first thing to do is to paint your closet, what color you want. I painted me an off-white color. It was a mismatched color from my hardware store, so was super cheap.
is dried Once your color completely, you can start Mod Podging your fabric on. Simply take a pencil and draw the shape of your Cabinet doors. Then cut out your fabric.
Spread a thin layer of Mod-smorgasbord on your case and glue the fabric.
Let it dry, and then spread another layer of Mod smorgasbord on the top side of the fabric. Do the same for any door that’s panel, and back to the top (if you want). Lightly sand the edges to give a distressed look, add some cute buttons, and you’re done!
Anyone wouldn’t let me power off the TV to take pictures. I have a green table runner {clearance from IKEA}, and I love it! To hide it’s nice to have a nice showcase, The Lord’s xbox one and all the other ugly TV stuff.
Thank you so much for having me, Amy. Please make sure to check out my blog to see what I’m up to. I’ve got rid of what ever, and I’d like to visit me.
