I really like these lamps; have had them quite a while, and decided to change them up a little today. The bases are beautiful; painted/chipped/glazed those last year. The current shades are jute covered...a challenge for painting! For this go-round, I added the upholstery fringe first...
then hand painted a simple stylized Eiffel Tower with a sample of black paint from Sherwin Williams. I did another one with Fleur de Lis on each side of the tower, but didn't like it so much. So now I think I'll need to hunt for two MORE matching shades. Thrift shops here I come! Hmmm, maybe I'll just recover the first one. Now THAT'S a thrifty idea! :)
OH! And that little table you see will soon be another Annie Sloan Chalk White re-do, as soon as my re-supply arrives. I've been so lucky to have been to Paris twice during the past few years, so having some of these things around me help me to remember those very special times in my life.
And speaking of blessings, must end this post with a couple of pics of my wee grandkidlets who are spending their summer with me here in Nova Scotia. This was their swim this afternoon at the lake a few minutes from where I live.
I count my blessings every . single . day.
Thank you SO much for visiting today! I wish you delightful times spent with the people you love and doing the things you love to do.
PS Thank you thank you THANK YOU to Teri for featuring my lamp!!
