My kitchen’s lamp (which I adore) shade was in such a desperate need of a re-do (and I didn’t want to buy another one).. I became inspired by another blogger’s shade she did using a thrift store sweater. Hmmm… I have a sweater I don’t wear and the color will match my kitchen.. soooo why not give it a try.. And I like the finished product…
The before lamp shade
The unused sweater becomes a used lampshade
It was worth the hour’s time and glue sticks, so this project costed me Zero dollars
It’s such a satifying feeling when you go into a thrift store and find what you need at the price you like.. These babies came home with me for $3.00 a piece. Sure I could have gone to a store and bought new.. but that’s too easy.. its something about the hunt that makes it even more gratifying. So as I always say… Happy Hunting.
Organizing makes life a little easier.. its simple but it made a big difference.. and I’m so glad I did it!
Before there was such wasted space
Yippeee!! I can grab a glass without breaking one..
Well.. let’s see.. today was very productive..and thank God for a dishwasher.. So.. today I decided to clean the china in the cabinet.. and re-visited my beautiful teacup collection. I forgot how lovely they were. I remembered when I started the collection.. and before I knew it – it grew so big. I had to force myself to stop.
The teacup candleholder went perfectly
The books were perfect addition
