New lamp!

I recently purchase the lamp you see below from Lamps Plus, I have been on the hunt for a french candlestick lamp, but on my small budget I just could not afford the higher end lamps :( until I came across this one from Lamps Plus and it was 20% off wooohoooo.....but the lamp shade was not what I wanted, I had my heart set on what is called a shield shade, browsing on ebay I came across what I was looking for and at a reasonable price too.......


Sadly the shade was to small...so I came up with a solution....


By adding a long fringe trim I was able to not only dress up the shade but make it look like the shade belong with the lamp ;-)


On top of the long fringe trim I added a beaded trim......


I really am loving my lamp....but! Yes you read it right there is a but...lol...I'm thinking I might want to white wash the lamp with Annie Sloan white chalk paint, and add gold accents...hummmm....what do you think, I would really like your opinion. thank you my friends....wishing you all a Very Happy Valentines Day.

My reupholstered sofa!

Hello sweet peeps, last month I had my sofa professionally reupholstered in a creamy tone on tone damask fabric, I'm totally loving the new look, I still have the side chair to be done as well but as we all know how expensive it is to have them professionally reupholster, so I have been saving up my pennies...lol....take a look and please let me know what you think???....


This fabric is sooo yummy it's like velvet.....


Love all the pillows.....


Sorry but my pictures never come out good, I need a camera! These pics are taken with my iPad....


But you still get the picture....lol.....


Thanks for stopping by, hope you like the new look on my old sofa...
Till next time...
