I have found a new love.
The flea market.
It's my new favorite place to go.
I love everything about it.
The friendly vendors. The amazing finds. The tiny green animal statues which remind me of my Nanny's living room. Sometimes I just stop and stare at them, it brings me back to my childhood, and I like that feeling.
Last weekend, I was lucky enough to find this sweet older lady selling these amazing lamps. She had two of them and since Older DM was with me we decided to each grab one. We bought both lamps for 25 dollars, I tried to bargain but the lady wasn't having it. She was sweet, and the lamps were beautiful, so she won. But I have to say, I did put up a good fight.
The lamp was in excellent condition, but I knew I wanted a little something more for the shade.
Something blue !
Luckily, at last weeks fabric sale, (...before white lamp and I met) I found this material.
I used 404 fabric adhesive to glue the fabric to the shade. I love this stuff, if you haven't tried it, you're really missing out.
I found the best way to cut your fabric is to roll your shade on the fabric and cut as you go.
Apply the adhesive and tuck it inside your shade.
|Happy Wednesday everyone - Thanks for stopping by.|
Come back Friday !
