forgive me for not posting yesterday. i just got SO busy!
you see, in addition to design work, and blogging, i also get to do
glamorous things like clean the toilets, do the laundry and try to
figure out what's for dinner. again.
sometimes, i just get a little swamped.
one of the little side projects for the den that has kept me busy is my version of an anthopologie lampshade.
when i spotted this lampshade several months ago,
i was smitten.
i loved the circles, the different textures.
i loved it all.
except for the colors.
so, i decided to make one that was a
little more neutral....
i'm not gonna lie....
it was pretty time consuming.
i fretted over where to put each and every circle...
when i first started cutting the circles out,
i thought i had WAY too many.
but i ended up using every single one.
it took about two yards of linen,
and two yards of trim.
i'm very happy with the way it turned out.
it's whimsical and textural and unique.
and looks really fun with the light on!
and my gold leafed lamp finally has a shade.
i will be posting a tutorial sometime this weekend.
see you soon!
