Today has been another beautiful day - I am enjoying every single moment.
I hope these days never end!
Our master bedroom has been under renovation since last October!!!
Yes, that's almost a year, another project that has fought us every step of the way.
I went to my first barn sale a few weeks ago, and I spotted a really cute lamp, that would be perfect for our bedroom,
and found this cute metal lamp..Oh this isn't how she looked when I bought her!
It caught my attention because of the open lacy filigree pattern
Isn't it pretty - $4.
I've been looking for a smaller lamp to sit on our bedroom's library table.
We took the lamp apart, primed and spray painted with Heirloom White.
I love her lightened up, clean and fresh.
Doesn't the metal pattern just pop now, adds such charm.
But the lampshade was just too plain for her, but I liked her shape.
I didn't want to rip the shade off, even though I like the wire look.
I started playing with some linen handkerchiefs and dollies.
I found this lace table runner (price tag still on) and started playing with it..but the pattern just didn't see to fit.
I started playing with another table runner I bought at the barn sale, and really liked the open pattern on it.
I started to rap the runner around the shade, tucking in the runner's top edges.
I gently formed the runner around the shade, the runner had a heavier weight to it and molded well to the shade.
It was very easy to mold the runner to the shade, and left a little overhang just below the shade.
I centered the pattern around the front of the shade.
I love how she looks all lit up, and a sneak peak of our bedroom.
I'm just loving her, she came out exactly how I imagined.
What lamps have you been working on?
