B & A: Lamp

Snooze alert.  We've all got colds and I've had blogger's block, so I'm just going to break the ice with a scintillating post that involves a glue gun and ambient lighting.

Ignore the unattended baby on a changing table and focus on the lamp.  It was cute enough in Owen's nursery, but I have to admit nesting syndrome and the clearance aisle at Target really worked against me on this one.  Lime green?  And dangle beads?

It's been hanging out (and ruining the vibe) in the recently finished guest room.  Which reminds me, I don't think I ever followed up on this post, did I?  

Well, anyway, last night I got out a seam ripper and removed the beading and green fabric.  Then today I took some maple banding left over from our stair rail project and starting experimenting.

I struggled a little with how to finish the edges, but it's not too bad for a zero cost update.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
