Just a little lamp update...

I have been on a blogging roll.  I am just doing a little high five, shoulder pat!  Anyway, now that my medicine has kicked in and I am not napping regularly I have a little more time in my day (Praise God for feeling better - more on that in another post!).  I have never been satisfied with the state of our office/playroom.  It felt like a mishmash and it took me rearranging a million and one times to get it where I like it today!  I mean I have a huge yellow house in there so it was not going to be this elegant masterpiece but I knew it could have "some style".  I made a lamp for Vera's room and it ended up being two big so a few coats of navy spray paint later and I had myself a new lamp...this was the lamp I got at Goodwill for $4.  I picked up a drum shade on sale at Target for about $10 and I had myself an almost perfect lamp for $14 (and some change with the spray paint).  
But the lamp shade was just not doing it for me, I didn't want a pattern because I have pretty bold patterned curtains but it needed texture so one evening in a blaze of "aha" I found some twine and got to hot gluing...

And it went from this...
To this...
And here is my expedit shelf serving as a console table and a little adult-ish in a toy filled room.  All those baskets hold toys :)....
Oh and my little bird was a Salvation Army find for a quarter - he just got some spray paint and he was as good as new!  I have another little surprise just waiting to be hung by my super awesome hubby this weekend (he doesn't know that yet ;).  And the mirror will find another new home....that poor mirror is going to get a complex.  It has had several homes but nothing permanent.
