I don't know what's going on in my head.
I should be thinking about decorating for Thanksgiving, and here I am fooling around with lamps!
Last post, you saw the new table lamp I bought.
This time, wanting to switch things up a bit, I decided I didn't want matching table lamps.
Hubby asked me what I thought about using the floor lamp from his music room.
It was one my mom had for many years, and it worked well except...
it was a brassy colored metal, and I wanted a dark lamp that would work with the new one.
Immediately, I thought of...ORB!!
It was a gorgeous day, so Hubby dragged the lamp outside, and taped the cord and sockets.
After a coat of primer and three coats of ORB, it looked pretty good.
Now, I'm happy...for the time being. Although the table looks a little bare without a lamp, I'm sure I can find something to put on it.
One other change I made, was to switch out the tray and big red apple, with a plant and metal pumpkins...I know, I'm still in that metal mode thing.
The pumpkins had been a flat brown color when I bought them, so I sprayed them with Hammered Copper spray paint. At least they look a bit more pumpkin-y.
I'm on my way to look at everyone's new posts for some Thanksgiving inspiration.
I've somehow gotten off track and started thinking about Christmas and buying Christmas gifts.
It's all Wal-Mart's fault. I went in to buy the primer, and the music playing was "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas"!!
Why can't they play "Come, Ye Thankful People, Come"?
Well, I know y'all will get me back on the right track for Thanksgiving.
