I mean, I'm talkin' the old 1980's abstract art, or maybe a really old dresser that you have had since you were a kid.
but FORTUNATELY your style has evolved and you think...
What to do,What to do??............
How bout' Goodwill...Salvation Army.. (DO IT, I'll BUY IT!) or maybe try to sell it on craigslist??
Well lemme' tell you a little story bout' a Lamp that was resurrected and now lives in my bedroom shining oh' so bright with all of its beauty. (Actually, I really love it but I might change the color soon) again.
Here she is....Poor thing :( Ugly Right??
Or can we say, "your 2000 late" or that's SOOO five years ago ( I HEART CLUELESS)! It's ok, she can't hear us, plus anyway, we all need a makeover once in a while. Well, how could ya' not just wanna throw in the towel and donate her? I did wanna'..... but they, yes there are 2, were my husbands.
BTW...He has been such a trooper letting me paint this, mod-podge that, and who else knows what I have been doing to our house :)
So during my blog
Ok, wait let me BACKUP, did I mention I am OBSESSED with Pottery Barn and Anthropologie decor, UHH-B-SESSED! Countless hours from my mobile device, desk and laptop staring at catalogs and dreaming of a home as such. Anyhoot, I FOUND a whole world of PB, Anthro-, Ballard Designs, Restoration Hardware KNOCK-OFF-ERS.
I discovered amazing Lindsay over at http://livingwithlindsay.com/2010/03/teach-me-tuesday-pottery-barn-knock-off-lamp-2.html and I about DIED. You have to check out the tutorial cuz she will go into detail where I, caffeine induced hyperdrive forgot to take all those in between pictures.
She took this...
and made this...
|P.S. The PB lamp was $159 bucks..NO THANK YOU! Linsdays $10!|
|PB's $59 lamp shade, UH NO!|
Oh, yeah didn't mention that I am in the middle of re-doing the bedroom. Moved ALL the furniture by myself!! SHE-RA! :)
