I had some unfinished business in the family room! Do you ever move on to another project before you've finished the one you started....happens to me all the time!
When I created a new lamp shade from a chicken wire cloche.....there was supposed to be a pair of them. One on on each side of the sofa. Now I can mark that off my list!
The lamp shades aren't exactly alike since I used left overs to create them, but they are similar
This one has pink bird crystals hung on it .......
The ribbon is different ,,,,,,and it has a crystal cross on the front
If you missed the post on how I decorated the one by H's chair, here's a link to it......http://penny-pennystreasures.blogspot.com/2017/08/ladder-love-and-chicken-wire-lampshade.html
My next unfinished project was the screen for the fireplace.
One side of the screen is covered in white lace.........Now, the other side of it is covered in a white and grey buffalo check.
It was an easy project, I just sprayed adhesive on the board, smoothed the fabric out, and trimmed it with a razor blade.
In order to have a pair of lamps for each side of the sofa, I had to give up the lamp base that was on the table by my chair. I shopped the house and found a base in the guest room that was perfect.
I wanted my lamp to be similar to the ones on each side of the sofa..
I had another chicken wire cloche....lol......I still have one more like this one only a bit bigger!
I decided not to hang crystals on this shade. I just clipped some vintage button cards around the rim of it.
Then I crated a little farmhouse style vignette on the sewing machine base.
I also changed out my blanket and pillow.
Most of my loose ends in the family room are tied up now and I'm ready for the week end.
