DIY Lamp Makeover
Most of you know that thrift stores can yield some real treasures. That is where I bought the pair of lamps I'm featuring today. I liked the lines and design of them but I wasn't wild about the brassy finish. I bought them with the vague idea that I would do something with them someday. We needed lamps in the living room and new lamps are SO expensive. So I brought them home, put bulbs in them and snap! They didn't work. :( Always a chance you take when buying used items. I did think of the…
My Aidan Gray Lamp
There are two ways I'm "feeling the light" these days. First, the song I mentioned last week. Love the words. How did you get here...locked inside of all this fear...your mind's a war...get out and live for more...there's so much more! God is shining His light into the hidden and sleepy corners of my heart.

DIY Restoration Hardware Inspired Lamp Makeover
These beautiful brass lamps were lovely, but my client wanted to give them a more modern updated makeover. We both loved the look of the lamps we'd seen in catalogs like Ballard Designs, Pottery Barn and of course Restoration Hardware but we didn't want to spend the money on new lamps. I decided to try to recreate the "greige" finish on these brass lamps and we both were thrilled about how they came out! Here is the before. I cleaned them thoroughly before priming them with a shella…
