I make my bed in two different ways. I usually just pull up the sheets/blanket and flop the pillows into place in a thoughtless rush. My bedding is all white and I swear, our black lab will only jump up onto the bed if the covers are pulled down so that she can leave a nice nest of needle sharp black hair right in the center. Anyways, I usually just throw the covers up to cover the sheets but about twice a week I make the bed up really pretty with all the decorative pillows and such. This morning as I was doing this one of my white pillowcases literally came apart at the seams. Obviously top quality! : D
So instead of tossing it I ripped it into strips and shabby-fied a dollar store lamp I had recently spray painted. I think I'll wax it so it doesn't have that "obviously spray painted" look. Kinda cute huh? My girls (7 & 3) helped me make it and it'll probably end up in one of their rooms.
And lastly, I found a HUGE antique mall on the west side of Houston. It was fun strolling the isles this morning. I found these corbels for a great price. Big and heavy! Not very ornate, but perfect for my project. I'm going to be making something for my bedroom with these babies.
Thank you for stopping by. Don't forget to link up to the party!
