Hello Beautiful People!
I'm not sure how the weather's been your way, but it's been extremely mild for Indiana. Although, I say that, and according to Weather.com, snow may be coming Friday. I've been overwhelmed with a sinus infection, a cold, and the flu for the last two weeks. Finally, today-I'm starting to feel a little better! I can't help but think it's partly due to the weather. Typically, I'm never sick. And wouldn't you know it, just as I start to feel better, the little Monsters start to feel yucky! Oh, the joys of parenthood! Before I get into the tutorial I want to share just a few exciting upcoming posts. I'm going on vacation next Wednesday and since I will be gone for awhile, I asked some of my favorite Bloggie BFF's to enlighten you! Beginning March 2nd through the 9th don't miss a post during "A Week With The Girls"...just to tease you-here are their names...Kate, Gwen, Janette, Marilyn, Cassie, Sarah, Roeshel, and Traci...I'll let you think about it, and if you're lucky, tomorrow I'll reveal their blogs. On to the tutorial...
Here's what you'll need:
Burlap lampshade (or shade of your choice)
Old jug, glass bottle...whichever you prefer
Bottle lamp kit
Phillips Screwdriver (when you assemble the lamp kit)
You can get the bottle lamp kit at Wallmart for around $4 or $5 bucks. They also have lamp kits that aren't specifically bottle lamp kits, and they will work as well. If you get one of those, you'll need heavy duty adhesive. I didn't have a bottle lamp kit, so I just used the adhesive and it worked fine.
Okay, so literally I've been loving these lamps from Pottery Barn. HOWEVER~I'm not rich, and honestly, if I DID have an extra $250-$300 dollars lying around...I sure
