mark my words i will be something some day

beautiful day and i spent most of it inside! finally able to open the windows and air the house out. purged the closets and drawers and did some shopping.

and finally it was warm enough to spray paint! so, i am finally able to produce the before and afters of my lamps (purchased for $5 each). Ideally, the shades would be slightly cylindrical but frugal was the name of the game and these are the best Walmart has to offer.



and for full effect

I still have to actually hang the mirror but you get the idea.

  1. Looks great. Love the ceiling light too. I think I saved a picture of a similar one out of Style and Home.
    I finally did some more finishing touches on the laundry room, painting the trim. Tomorrow perhaps I will tackle the caulking.
    I feel a bit like I overcommitted to social events this weekend. Had dinner with my friend Melissa, who is pregnant with triplets, last night. And tomorrow another friend is coming for dinner (prime rib).
    So I have to clean tomorrow instead of doing projects. Really want to get the chest remake underway but not sure the best way to cut off the old rail (which you told me the correct name for but I forget).
