Well I am excited to say I am FINALLY done refinishing a pair of old brass lamps I got from that sale :) They were $10 and I got them with a very cool hutch (also $10) we had to strap to Bill's car to get home.
I let Bill pick the color for these since I wasn't really sure where they would work in our new home yet - and I LOVE the color he chose.
Here is how they started:
|Two awesomely brass (heavy) lamps|
|Ta da! A lamp! In a (still) very unpainted nursery...|
|It's a very pretty, sunny yellow|
I decorate with purpose, I don't like to go to a store, choose an entire display and cart it home. I choose individual items that speak to me and I'm letting this house tell me where things belong.
Once I took the photos I realized the room still isn't sanded, primed or painted (my bad), so I asked for some help to move the dresser and started sanding.
I know, I know...I'm not wearing a mask. I had my T-shirt over my nose for some of the sanding, I swear.
|Someday the walls will get primed and painted. |
Maybe today. Maybe next week.
