I'm back home from my trip and missing my parents (and their cute new abode) already. We had so much fun!
I wanted to share with you a DIY makeover project that I did for them while I was there. You know you're a serious DIY-er when you start taking to other people's houses, huh? The victim was this lamp. The base was chipping, and while there was nothing wrong with the shade, my mom and I decided it didn't quite fit the modern look of their chic new home (sorry Dad, we didn't consult you first!).
So we went out shopping for inspiration and supplies, and now, it looks like this.
A crisp white shade, some mustard-colored spray paint, and the white ball on top completely transformed this lamp. It's funky, retro, and fun! And it really fits the look of the houseboat, which they have decorated with pure whites and solid colors. My mom and I both love it--my Dad, though, is a little unsure. It is really different, and would never have worked in their old house. We're hoping that as the lamp settles into its new home he will settle into liking it. At the very least, maybe he'll like that it matches the throw pillows! Or is that a girl thing?
Tell me what you think. Do you like the lamp makeover?
