Day 12-14 Challenge Task 8 - Making our own Table Lamp

Day 12-14 Challenge Task- Making our own Table Lamp 

We own this table lamp for the past 8 years and it was only used once - during my wedding day where the custom says that we must have a pair of table lamps lighted up over the night. After that, this table lamp have been kept in the storeroom until one day, I saw an inspiration on facebook on a DIY lantern. So this is became a challenge task 8. 

On top of having the table lamp, we bought some beads and a string of pink lace.
Natalie started stringing the beads together. While Emmanuel and Faith helped to clean the table lamp up by wiping and washing it thoroughly.

We glued the strings of beads onto the table lamp and glued the pink lace around it.

At the start of the project, Natalie already had this gift in mind for someone this Christmas. She observed that the person do not have a table lamp and thus would have use for this table lamp. Also, wanting to make this lamp even more special, she wanted to write this verse:

" Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you" 

on the table lamp so that the person whom she is giving the gift to, will wake up everyday reading this verse. By the way, she learnt it from school and thought that this verse was appropriate for the person she is giving this gift to. She wrote the words herself using a golden marker.

I'm happy that Natalie managed to turn something as plain as the white table lamp to something so meaningful and beautiful. I'm sure the person receiving this gift will love her thoughtfulness and creativity.
