Okay, a sneek peek of the lamps....
So this is our dining/family room. It is not a large space and sometimes I feel like I am trying to crowd too much in but that's usually when it is cluttered with family 'stuff'. When it's tidied up I'm okay with it.
The brown TV cabinet is on my "to paint" list. I may go grey I think.
You may/maynot have noticed that I STILL haven't finished my wall stripes. They should go to the corner. I'm afraid I'm one of those decorators (please tell me I'm not the only one), once I can see how the idea in my head looks in reality, I'm satisfied. That's when I lose my motivation to finish the job. Sadly, I'm not the best finisher.
I love my IKEA jute rug, love it! (BELOW)
So here is one of the lamps before, (ebay $30 the pair).
And after......I would like to put a white band around the top also but I ran out of ribbon. Maybe it would be over-kill, what do you think?
Here they are again, before. The ebay seller was quite possibly the sweetest lady I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Her husband, on the other hand, was an old grump. How does that happen??? As I was leaving, I had the feeling that I didn't want to leave her there alone with that man.
I, personally, am in love with them. They make me smile, alot :o)))))
Only one small problem. I painted the shades and when they are switched on, the brush strokes can be seen. Any advice gratefully accepted. Maybe another
coat of paint.
