One of the great things about Sun Kissed Husband is that no matter what hideous thing I come home with (that I say I love), for the most part, he just smiles and nods. He does this because he knows that things don't sit too long in my home without being transformed. When I came home with this big avocado-colored lamp, he kept quiet and just let me be.
Then the time came for the lamp to go through it's metamorphosis. I glued pages from the Hymnal books to the shade and spray painted the base, my color of preference lately, white.
I felt that the base of the lamp called for a wider shade so I "extended" it by glueing jute ribbon overlapping the border and this is how it came out.
I also wrapped the same burlap ribbons to pillows to give it a more autumn look.
This is my corner of the the family room couch. Here's where I blog, watch TV, read to the boys. I love my corner. With the lamp re-do, I think this corner just became a little more me.
I still have tons of pages to use up. Now if I can only get the boys as excited as I am to craft with them!
