Happy Friday!!! Let’s get this party started (of course by party I mean the tutorials for Macie’s Boho Bedroom Makeover!) If you are looking for sources for the items that are in the room check out this post.
Up first are the incredible wall mounted task lights that are on either side of Macie’s bed.
First things first, you need to get your happy self to Target. They have these really great stick lights that will make your life SO much more simple and you sort of need them to do this project….
Start by taking the light off of the base, you will just have to loosen the screw, and it should come right off.
I decided to change out the cord because I am obsessed with cloth coil cord right now, but that is 1000% optional!
*If you decide to leave your cord on you will need to tape it off while you are painting!
Give it a few LIGHT coats with the color of your choice. I used Black in satin for mine. Let it dry completely before you manhandle it. Rewire it if you chose to change it, or take the tape off if you didnt.
Now pull out your wooden dowel and copper fittings.
You will need:
Super glue (DO NOT use Gorilla Glue for this. Trust me.) I love this type from Loctite
Start by painting your dowels (or leaving them plain if you are a hippy and just love things natural.)
The assembly is simple folks. Just put the glue on the dowel before you put it into the elbow.
Let your glue set for the recommended time (usually around 24 hours) before you attach your light.
Once your light is on you can glue on the caps that will on the end of the dowels.
Mount them using pipe straps and enjoy the amazingness day and night!
Total cost? $23.00
I just wanted to update everyone on the Target Copycat situation.
First I need to say thank you for your support, you guys have blown me away with your love and concern. I think the term Target used was very devoted readers. You guys are amazing. That is all there is to it.
I did have a conference call with Target, they were so nice and understanding. They will be doing a really fun Q&A on the Bullseye View blog in the next few weeks (I will be sure to let you know when that is live!) and we are thinking of some some ways that we can work together in the future! I am a firm believer that you should date a brand before you expect them to propose a lifelong commitment to you. So Target and I have had a little bit of an awkward first date, but I am really looking forward to seeing what kind of relationship I hope it can blossom into. Because I think we both like each other. Hopefully in the next while everyone on the playground will be singing “Vintage Revivals and Target sitting in a tree….”
