focus!!!

In yesterday's post I said I was going to concentrate on the dining room
before starting another project.  That lasted about 12 hours! Seriously???
I was reading this great roundup of DIY lighting projects from Darlene at Fieldstone Hill,
this morning and saw this...


Isn't it gorgeous?!  What do you think it's made of?
 It was created by Emily from the blog Newlywife, she and her cousin, both newlyweds,
share their projects, recipes and ideas. Amazing job!

I had this lamp just sitting in my basement waiting for some inspiration to strike!
I spared you the scary scene and brought it upstairs!


A Goodwill find for $35, not my typical score, but it was brand new, without a scratch.
I asked the clerk about it and she said sometimes they get items directly from Target, huh?
No details from her, but sure enough...here it is for $69.

This is what I've done so far...

Testing..1..2..3


First light coat (the trick to spray paint..light coats).
Check back on Monday for the reveal and the material it's made of.
And then I'll be back to focusing on the dining room!



Have a wonderful weekend friends,
 hope you'll be focusing on FUN!

In all of my excitement over starting the new project...
 I totally spaced I was supposed to share a completed project
at Lisa's Before and After Party, so you'll be getting another post from me today, too!

I couldn't wait...I looked up your source to see how she made it, but I won't tell! So cool and I can't wait to see your twist on the project.

So pretty! Can't wait to hear your secret! Your vision continues to amaze me. So many things that I would have passed up, but would buy your transformed projects in a heartbeat.
