To keep myself from going insane after oh-so-many days here at MHC (we only have one car at the moment and Don has been using it for work) I finally got around to a project that had been on my mind for a long while. A simple one, really, but one that for some reason I just kept ignoring.
The lamp shade. We keep this lamp on our kitchen counter. Please ignore my tiled countertop with the awful dark tinted grout – someday it will be replaced. Anyway, the lamp used to be closer to the stove, hence the various stains on the white lampshade. I’m too cheap to replace the lampshade, so yesterday I went through my fabric and found a cute pattern that I thought would do nicely.
Scissors, a glue stick and voila!
I can’t believe the transformation. And I can’t believe I didn’t get around to this sooner!
In the studio cabinet, I added a piece of lace to the edge of one of the shelves:
I want to find another piece similar in design and width for the top shelf. How nice that I left the glue stick right in the middle of this shot. I’m always doing things like that, though the culprit is usually my lens cap.
I’ve been reading like a madwoman but there are times I just need to create. Even if it’s something fairly simple – it makes me happy.
