A few days ago I posted about my Pottery Barn look alike lamp I bought while out of town. I couldn’t wait to get home and place it “just so”. I couldn’t wait to take pictures so I didn’t style these photos at all.….so without further ado, here “she” is in her new home in the den…
OMG, I’m in L-O-V-E!!!!
The lamp reminds me of an Aidan Gray lamp. Here’s one I found on line similar to mine:
Theirs: $371.25 (!) and it’s out of stock!
Mine: $39.99!!! Yippee Skippee!
Now with the lamp off..
I’ve been making several sets of these books….just tear off the book covers and tie up with twine, ribbon or whatever you like. I always buy my books that I’m going to tear up from the thrift store for around 50 cents to $1.00 each….I think PB sells theirs in sets of 3 for $39.99!
Don’t you just love it?
The clock on the dresser is an old family clock that is over 100 years old! It was used in my grandparents home when they first set up “housekeeping” as my grandmother used to say. I was so lucky to inherit it when my moved out of her home. I plan on taking it to a clock repair shop and get it in working condition.
You might say that I’ve been in a DIY mood lately. I made a moss covered monogram last weekend that I’ve moved around the house. Hubby says it reminds him of Elf on the Shelf….you never know where you’ll see it! (He’s a real joker)…….
There are so many how-to’s on making the moss covered monograms. It’s really very simple. I found my letter at Joanne’s and bought the sheets of moss at Hobby Lobby. The only thing is this project took LOTS of hot glue and I may or may not have uttered some bad words!
How do you like my fancy-schmancy work table?
On the sideboard in the den….
On the baker’s rack on the deck….
On a tray on top of the refrigerator….
On the baker’s rack in the kitchen
….and one more time. (The silver shells were another little project I’ll share another time.)
I’ve got a couple more projects I’m working on….a large basket from my mom’s house that holds our firewood in the winter that’s getting a makeover
I sprayed it this gray color but I’m going to white wash it and then stencil two sets of numbers on each side….39 & 14 which was her house number on her street (3914). When I finish the basket I will be sure to share it with ya’ll….
…..and I have a vintage crate from her house that will get stained and stenciled (do you see a pattern here?) to hold magazines. It’s pretty big and I might even add wheels to it so it’s movable….I have tons of magazines!
That about wraps it up for this weekend….hope everyone has a good Monday. I’m planning on finishing the basket and crate….wish me luck!
