Lamp Remix

I have a love for all things crafty. For about two years now, I've been following some great DIY/Craft blogs that have been so inspiring! I've even tried my hand at some of the projects and have really loved the way they turned out.

On a recent trip to Goodwill, I snagged this beauty.

It was a pretty good deal at $10, lampshade and all. And I know, it's pretty fugly. While you can't really see them in the picture, there are scratches all over the base and that shade is spray painted hunter green. Yeah, classy.

My plan is to rehab it into something I won't mind people seeing when they come to my house. I think it's doable, but we'll just have to see.

The "after" photo will be coming soon...

And in the meantime, I thought I'd share some of the newer blogs that I follow:

MADE (my best friend Summer lived in this gal's ward -- she even moved into her house when they moved)

Cluck. Cluck. Sew.

Make It and Love It

Diary of a Quilter

Those are some great links for inspiration, tutorials, and just all-around crafty goodness.

Can't wait to see what you do with this! The base looks really cool, but I agree that the lampshade is not a keeper. (c8
