UncategorizedDay 3: 31 Days of Finishing Rooms October 3, 2011 Okay guys, I need to say thanks. Your comments and encouragement mean so much to me. I was definitely nervous to tackle this and a part of me is thinking am I crazy???!!! But your comments really inspire me to keep at it and see what happens. So, today, I’m going to share two little projects with you. First, I want to talk about the living room lamps. Here they are today. But, they weren’t always so pretty. I found this set of lamps for $4 each at our local Goodwill. Here’s where they started: They actually look better in the picture than they did in person. They were really rusted. I sanded and cleaned them first, then put on a coat of primer. Then, I spray painted them this cool gray color. It’s really rich looking for a gray. Here they are in the room. I really like how these go with the fabrics I’m using for the pillows. Here’s a shot of the lamp with the two fabrics: I can’t find these fabrics on Ballard Designs website anymore. I ordered them quite a while ago and have just been waiting for a chance to make them. I’ve gotten to the tan zebra print pillows and I’m loving them! I have some unique plans for the gray floral fabric (it’s called Sandicci Gray in case anyone wants to search for it). I’ll be back with those tomorrow! Thanks for hanging around!
