Okay, I am drawing a blank trying to name this post..
So Redo it is.
My Dad brought me this UGLY lamp.
He got it for FREE! YAY Dad!
He moved a huge library and they were throwing it out.
He thought of me and snatched it up.
First thing first...
I ripped off the shade and
found a lovely skeleton.
I was debating about leaving her like this
and painting the brass lamp...
I had seen a long time ago somewhere on a blog...
(forgive me I can't recall where)
She took the shade ripped strips and covered it in that.
So I went to my stash and found these Heather Bailey fabric
that I have had for a while.
I thought that would be pretty.
and started at it.
Ripping and tying...
and Voila... when it was done...
I HATED it.
that wasn't right.
so again this morning I thought oh... put the strips on
the other direction.
So I pulled the entire thing apart and started to
and voila again...
I loved it.
I still may just paint that lamp... not sure yet.
I kinda liked the brass .
I will live with her a while and then decide.
not sure if I am going to leave it up on the mantel..
I kind of like it up there.
I need one more small globe to add to my collection.
The other night a jewelry commercial came on...
Kay jewelers I think... they were showing a husband giving his wife some
diamond heart necklace..
(something I would NEVER want)
I told Dom, instead of the necklace for Valentines day
he could just get me a small globe.
