So today I made a quick run into the thrift store looking for a shelf to use in the master bath... which by the way I did not find. What I did find is this wonderful frame.. I have been looking for a good frame to use to display some white (faded and off white) antique dolls and a baby sweater. My plan was to put some linen or burlap as a backing and pin the clothes into the frame. I thought this frame would be perfect for the job, it is is heavy wood. Here comes the problem.. Problem # 1 that is
I have decided I may want to use the print in the fame for our bedroom.. I used the same colors of blues in the bedroom.. it's certainly not the nicest print in the world ..but I do love the way the sheep are looking at Jesus. So what do you think? Should I redo the whole thing or keep the print in the frame? What color would you paint the frame if I decide to keep the printt? I would diffenatly paint it white and antique it if I use it to display the clothes.
Problem # 2 The Lamp...
again a thrift store find.. I thought I scored.. this lamp was exactly the shape I wanted so I immediately went to buy a shade from Home Goods. Shades are not easy to find. .. any ideas on where to get them? Last week I had found a smaller similar shapped lamp. Hubby sprayed it chocolate brown for me..the paint bubbled.. so he says he will sand it down and paint it again. I haven't heard of anyone else having this issue.. we used Krylon.. anyway back to this lamp.... What color would you paint the base? or would you leave it? What about the shade? Should I cover it? If so what fabric would you recommend? And last question for this one... Is it too large?
Problem # 3
I painted and stained this lamp.. it was the gold color every lamp from Kirklands was for a few years.. sorry I don't have a before pic. What would you do with the shade for this lamp? It is still that gold color which does not look good with the new color. Any ideas.. would you use a different shade?
I think the base really turned out well and would look great with the right shade. What about you?
Hope everyone has a good week.. we had a gorgeous day in here in NC, but storms tonight.. the plants will love the drink. Happy Monday and thanks for stopping by. I would love to have you follow me. I really have enjoyed meeting all you wonderful bloggers.
