I've been rather silent on the blog lately, mainly because I spend every extra moment working on our house. It is truly a diamond in the rough and we will be doing much of the updating ourselves, which I'll share here over the coming months.
Our 1950s home came with a whole lot of great (but in need of updating) vintage fixtures and here is the first of many before and after projects:
Nothing wrong with this burlap hanging lamp in the master bedroom, it just looks dated and the burlap made it too dark.
I was thrilled to find that the burlap was actually a DIY cover that the previous owners glued on so it was easy to pull off! The original vintage shade is revealed underneath but it was dingy and badly stained.
Some glossy white spray paint and a yard of red polka dot fabric later, we have a bedroom lamp that will be adorable with the quilt I'm making shown in my last post. Ignore the dingy white walls - they aren't painted yet either!
So much to do, so much to do...
