On Friday night, I
I definitely have my work cut out for me this week/weekend, that's for sure! Here are my plans for each of the projects.....
~ Bases spray painted blue
~ Add new shades made from basic drum shades and sisal rope from the hardware store
I think they'll look very "beachy" when I'm through!
~ Give it a thorough sanding...
~Paint the yucky oak finish BLACK...
This about what it looks like now, except the seat is a different pattern of gold
~Spray paint it silver/ white(?) haven't decided completely yet...
~Sew it a little nautical-striped cushion
I can't wait to show you the real before and after photos! I'm hoping to complete the lamps by Thursday evening (wishful thinking??), but we'll see. And in other news, I was so pleased yesterday when I hosted our family's mother's day gathering, to hear so many of my relatives tell me how lovely and homey our house is. I'm so enjoying decorating it on the cheap (we're still under $1200 for all of our improvements/projects/furniture so far!), and I'm loving that others feel instantly comfortable the moment they walk in our doors: mission (although still in progress) accomplished. I hope you all had wonderful weekends celebrating your mothers! Happy Monday, all!
