I was unable to go out to any yard sales this weekend due to the fact that I have noooooo money. We just found out that we have to get the antifreeze line replaced in our truck and it can only be done at the dealership:( Our car insurance is due and we had spring break last week so I lost a weeks pay. But no matter, there is always next week!
So this week I got to work doing some projects that used stuff that I already had around the house.
So you may remember this lamp from this post.
Loved the lamp but the shade needed a lil sumthin'-sumthin'.
So while looking at the other projects that were on the link parties that I participated in yesterday. I found a wonderful blog Creations from My Heart. I loved her project that she had linked up and decided to browse through her older posts. Well she is soooo creative, I just love her posts.
Anyway back to the lamp shade. I new I wanted to do something it looked so bor-ing , but I wasn't sure what till.......I found this wonderful tutorial.
I knew when I saw this that it would be the perfect use for the Toile fabric that you may remember from here.
So I rummaged through my supplies and found some wonderful trim that I bought at Jo-Ann's back in October for .25 and .50 cents a yard!!!!
Well I won't bore you with all the details because Sherry's tutorial says it all!!!!
So with out further ado her she (yes my lamp is a girl) is!!!
I so Love it!!!!
Well I can't wait to torture myself seeing all the treasures that everyone else scored this weekend!
So tell me are you putting all your treasures to use?
