I am so very proud of my Hubs vision and talents, please allow me to brag a bit more!
This post was originally shared last week on Transformation Thursday @ The Shabby Chic Cottage, but I decided to link this fabulous make-over out in the blog world a little further.
I am linking this post with, Between Naps on the Porch @ Metamorphosis Monday
with Kimba @ A Saft Place to Land, DIY Day.
Both of them are favorites of mine,lots of eye-candy & great ideas, but I was always lurking, never linking.
Well... today I link!
My Hubs is the BEST!!
I mentioned to him this morning that I really wanted something new and fun to share on Transformation Thursday at The Shabby Chic Cottage. We recently returned to blogging and have participated in a couple of fun parties at, The Inspired Room & Flea Market Style. (see our posts here & here) We have had such a good time working on our projects plus we found we work better with a deadline! (duh)
We had church responsibilities that took up most of the day, but on our way back from Fresno, Hubs pulled into Lowes & bought a $10 lamp kit.A few years ago, Hubs Father-in-law, gifted him with an awesome vintage surveyors transom. We used the patina filled wood case & the actual transom in a vignette on top of our armoire in the great room. So, that left the warm-wood tripod legs available for this project.
When we got home, Hubs spent 10 minutes putting the lamp kit together and then 20 minutes in our barn searching through our salvage and flea market finds for the perfect lamp shade.
He scored when he found a 1950's Haeger pottery lamp with the perfect shade!
Have you seen how much these lamps cost at Pottery Barn or Restoration Hardware?
We now have a fabulous lamp for a $10 lamp kit, a shade off of a $15 estate sale lamp & the memory of a thoughtful gift from a lovely man!
We love it!
