i love cool lamps but they can be just so darn expensive! and even if you do pay the price, they lack a certain “special” quality. that unique twist that makes them fit perfectly into the decor.
and so, i have decided follow in the footsteps of those brilliant folks at design*sponge and try my hand at creating a personalized lampshade or two.
there is never a shortage of fabulous prints at the fabric store so perhaps i will pop over there with my mom one afternoon and snag some interesting pieces. that plus a good ol’ vintage etsy find and i should be in good shape for raw materials. from there, i am hoping that i can just follow the step-by-step and then, voila! a gorgeous and one-of-a-kind lamp for miss elinor’s room.
wish me luck!
what fun diy projects are you tackling these days?
what a great weekend. my week was so busy with my tasks and projects [culminating in a big work event that went really well and that is now officially behind me] that a relaxing weekend with my man was especially needed. after the dust had settled from the event, i took a deep breath, met up with my hubby, and kicked off our weekend with some yummy food at bourbon steak. from there, it was more or less just taking naps, watching movies, catching up on my home-duties, and recovering…nothing too snap-worthy, but it was perfect in my book. here are a few pics from our evening at bourbon steak.
the swanky entrance + the cool decor + hubby, leading the way + i love the laid-back, modern vibe + so ready to relax with a big burger! + our beverages of choice…a beer for him and sparkling water for me + a little starter…short rib slider with slaw and horseradish dipping sauce + the quintessential burger
