I don't know if any of you remember my post this summer about lamps for my studio but this photo was one of my dream photos for a lamp found on Pinterest. Of course I never took the extra time to see if I could figure out how to make it and had no clue where it came from... you know how lost you can get on Pinterest sometimes?! Anyway I am digressing... on Pinterest today I ran across this studio re-design and there was "THE" lamp again but this time with a link to the blog (thank you Beth for your creativity)! Well I hopped over there so fast it would have put a bunny to shame and this wonderful blogger explained, basically, what she had done to make it.
As I looked closer at the lamp I realized if I took a light kit, one of those barrel shaped lampshades, for which under normal circumstance I am not a fan of, covered it with rusched (spelling anyone?) fabric, added a few buttons and then covered the cord with more fabric and hung it from the ceiling with a hook... voile!!!
No, no, there is nothing wrong with my lovely new lamps. I still adore them but I found in the end that the lamps I purchased for my desk were too tall blocking a lot of the natural light from the windows. I relegated them to different spaces in the studio and more or less forgot about it. Now, not being a sewer who knows how this is going to turn out but I REALLY, REALLY want this light!
Does anyone do the happy dance anymore? Well, I am! :D And I went over to Pinterest to look for a recipe for a sugar body scrub! LOL!
