Barb, the fever girl, here.
Yeah, still running a temperature but I think I’m on the mend. I hope.
I just wanted to stop in and show y’all the progress of my lamp makeover. You might remember these ugly ducklings that look like your great granny might have had them in her parlor...
Yeah, not exactly my style, to say the least.
This is what one of them looks like now:
I know, not the greatest photo but I took it last night and it was dark and I was just excited. I will share a better photo in the next few days but you get the general idea, right?
Well, I need a little help...the scalloped edging at the bottom of the wire lampshade frame has me a little perplexed. I started doing some simple knots with the same fabrics I used to make the shade (you can see two at the bottom of the shade up there) but I don’t think I like them.
I was also thinking of making some feux (ie fake) crystal dangly things to hang from each of the scallops. I’m just not sure. I do know that it doesn’t feel finished, yet.
In case I don’t get back around before Wednesday (btw, AJWednesday will be pushed back a few days because of the holiday), I wanted to wish everyone a very happy holiday season, whatever your holiday may be.
peace & love,
