Hi all you lovelies how are you all? Thank you so much for all your kind words in messages & e-mails, they have brought tears to my eyes but not in a bad way if you know what I mean....you know & explaining things....I'm rather pants at it arnt I??
Anyway I started crafting last night & its a damn good therapy let me tell ya lol. I'm not showing you yet tho cus I've not took piccies yet. However what I thought I would show is something I altered..........again lol.
I love shabby chic & thats what my bedroom was in so I brought plain lamps & gave them a beating etc lol & the pic below shows you how they looked when they were done..........my bedroom at the time is a very pale green which you can see on the wall behind lol.
Click on photos to see them better..........
Yeah just the base got the beating lol. Now this is taken in the middle of decorating & the new bedroom is more 'French Chic' this time so needed new lamps.............hubster not happy bout that 1 so my designing skills came out again & I turned the above lamp into this..........
I sprayed the base black & then attached wool & some beaded binding. The bow is actually a crimbo tree bow I removed the gold tinsel & wrapped wool around the middle to hold it together (like the tinsel did) & then added a crochet flower I made & a black flower to the centre from my stash.
Black flower is from WOC
This is on my bedside after the room was decorated............
Viola........this is it lit up....... they really do look gorgeous & I'm so pleased with them.
They match the bedroom perfectly & at a fraction of the cost. I also painted the bed as it was light oak, there is a mirror to match to go above the bed but I've still not finished it lol.
My furniture is just cheap furniture from Ikea as my son took mine with him........grrrrrrr
This is some of the last bunch of flowers my dad ever brought me, luckily I dried them out & split the bouquet into 2 as it was huge. This lot I decided to spray with matt white spray paint suitable for spraying on flowers. Its not covered perfectly as I did not want it to.
The little boxes are part of a gift all the DT girls got from Kenny K & Elena a few months back.
Well sorry for the long post & lots of photo's lol. Will be round soon to do some hopping Ben & Megan are on their way...........well I havnt seen them since last night lol. I know I'm soft & soppy lol.
See ya all soonies mmwah.
Thankyou so sooooo much for stopping by.
