The school year is about to start and I am ready!
Ready to get on a schedule, travel less, and have a routine.
Being a stay at home Mom I appreciate schedules and routines because sometimes it’s hard to have those if you are at home all day with kiddos.
I worked on a few projects over the weekend, one including this lamp that I made-over:
I think I bought this when I was in college…….many years ago
Much better! I used a technique called “dry brushing”. All you do is take a dry brush and get a very little amount of paint on it and lightly go over the object. Repeat until you have the desired look you are going for. I like this because it gives the piece dimension and looks some what distressed.
I cut burlap strips and simply tied them around the frame of the lamp shade.
Very shabby chic! I will be selling this at the Funky Junk Market in Funk, NE on September 13th!
Hope you all are having a great week and thanks for stopping by!
