What’s my inspiration?
I have been hauling around a very unique lamp with a fire engine red, feathered shade since before I was married (my husband gave it to me while we were dating). The style is very reminiscent of my 20’s – contemporary with a touch of ‘over the top’. For some reason I kept this lamp around knowing that someday, it would be useful again. This year, I finally found a home for it in the bedroom at the cabin. Of course, it needed a full make over to suit my new, more mature 31-year-old style. (Yes friends, I called my self mature…stop laughing). A can of blue spray paint, a new lamp shade and some home-made rosettes was all it needed. Oh, and lets not forget rhinestones.
While the bedroom pillows I made were lucky enough to avoid my bedazzeling tendency’s, this 31-year-old can’t fully escape my 20’s. Bedazzled lamp shade it is. Plus, don’t you think it is adorable with my bedroom quilt & pillows?
