Ok people.... I know this is a good thing and a bad thing....for me anyway. Room to Inspire is giving away an amazing Silhouette package. Me posting about this gets me another chance to win but means more people know about it and will enter. Oh well....best of luck to all of us. May the luckiest blogger win!!!!
Ballard's has their Burlap Ribbon on sale. Regular price is $12.00 and it is on sale for $3.99. You may need to call in your order because when I went to the cart it said it was no longer $3.99, but was $10.00. I called and they placed my order and adjusted the price. Happy shopping!
I have been on the hunt for a heavy brass lamp that I could score on the cheap. I have loved all of the Pottery Barnish refabs i have seen all over blog land. So....I was hunting shopping in Goodwill one day and I heard the angels sing. Could it be......a tall sexy brass lamp. Could it really only be $3.50? Yep! Does it work? Yep! In the buggy it went and I am ashamed to say that anyone who even eyed it got the stank eye from me. I would have took somebody down for this beauty.
I rubbed it down with steel wool, cleaned it up and took out the lighting fixture and wiring.
Painted it with "Oil Rubbed Bronze", rewired it with an all in one kit from Lowe's. Picked up a lamp shade from Wal-Mart and all was good until I realized the harp was too big for the shade. Back to Lowe's and got an eight inch harp and no I am lovin it!!!
Light ~ $3.50
Shade ~ $14.99
Light kit ~ 9.99
Harp ~ 4.00
Grand total of $32.48 ~ Not bad if I must say so myself!
I just had to share with you guys. I am so happy..... if my feet felt better I would be jumping up and down and doing the happy dance.
I have had my first refab sale. The best part about it is a friend who moved away saw it on my Facebook and decided she wanted it. She is going to have her brother pick it up and bring it to her over the holidays.
Whoot Whoot!!!!!! What now!!!!!!
I know, I know......I didn't win the lottery but it is still exciting. I am more excited about someone liking my work than the money, and trust me they are both important.
