I found this LAMP at DI for a little more than I would have liked but 4.00 isn't too shabby!

I found this white shade the same day for 1.00 and it fit perfectly,so I bought them both and put them in the BASEMENT until I could BRAINSTORM what I wanted it to BECOME!

YESTERDAY I was at Walmart and found this fabric on the clearance rack for 1.50 a yard I only needed 1/2 a yard making it .75 SWWWEEET I also found this rope thing I can't think of what it is called .LOL!anyway it was 1.47 a yard so I bought 2 yards. I hot glued the material to the shade!

Then I hot glued on the flat rope thingy!HA HA HA!!

A working lamp for a total of 8.75 OH YEAH!IT turned out very elegant just what I had pictured in my TINY little brain!!
Now I have to find an END TABLE to put it on. So that will be my next treasure to try to find at the DI.MY husband and I are headed to SALT LAKE to go DI hopping tomorrow I AM SO EXCITED!! I KNOW I KNOW I'M A LITTLE TWISTED,but that is my idea of a great DAY!WOOHOO!!! BY BRIANA

Do you have the time?

Found this cute clock at our trusty Goodwill. Cute little red thing! But didnt stay that way for long. I took this thing apart and sprayed the red rim with a cream color and the hands with a dark chocolate brown.I also found this wire thingy. Yes, I can make magic with these!!
I took some cute scrapbook paper and cut a circle to the right size. I cut a slit and a small circle out of the center to fit it around the clock hands. This isn't the paper I used, just demonstrating.

I got out some cute jewels to pose in the number spaces. I put it all back together and attached the wire thingy to the back but only at the top because I wanted to make sure we can change the battery when needed.

Fun and chic for a little girls room!

I found this shelf at DI for 1.50 it was a cherry wood color so I painted it ANTIQUE WHITE!
I love adding handles to things so I took this handle .94 at home depot, painted it BROWN and then sanded it down just a little.

Sanded the shelf just enough to make it look antiqued. Attached the handle with hot glue.

And hung it on my daughters wall.I love using handles on things it adds just the right amount of
