This family room is going to get finished before I retire.
I keep making a few changes here and there mainly to keep the momentum going. Because objects that are in motion stay in motion. It’s science.
After cleaning out our storage areas a few weeks ago, I came across a large lamp. Being in the purging mood, I immediately put it in the give-away pile. One more thing outta the house! But, then I really looked at it and realized the family room needs a beefy lamp and this one was already ours. Why buy another one?
After this find I had to make a trip into town and one of the stops included Target. I hate it when I have to run errands. 😉 I love
stalking shopping the clearance aisle. And that fateful day in Target was no exception. Why? Because I found this!
Once the lampshade made it back to our abode, the next decision was what spray paint to use.
Don’t worry this one was kind of easy. I didn’t want a color that would compete with our media cabinet, but I did want a color that would make a little bit of a statement.
I am really digging this color. A few months ago I picked up a wicker chair from the side of the road someone wanted to throw away and painted it this color. It looks awesome. And it looks even better in my classroom. So, I knew the color would look really sharp on the lamp.
I took it outside to the spray paining spot. I wish I was kidding. There’s a patch of dead grass that I’ve claimed as mine for projects. Adam is happy to oblige. 🙂
Two coats of spray paint, lamp shade placed, and lamp set on the side table later the lamp has found its place.
So I have to ask, should I paint the cord? Or just leave it?
Hope you have an awesome weekend!
