I’ve been missing in action this past week.
Just taking a little time off and working on a project.
I want to thank you all for the awesome lampshade advice!
So many of you were so sweet to help me with this lampshade dilemma.
The majority of you thought the new lampshade was a little too small for the base and I agree. I am going to return both of the burlap/linen shades.
Some of you suggested that I cover the white shade, which is something I thought of but a fabric on top of the shade would allow little light in through the shade and I use these lamps for reading.
I am going to do what some of you suggested and keep the white shades and hold out for something that fits.
Once again, so appreciative of all your help!
Now here is what I’ve been working on this week.
I bought a matching pair of these club chairs at GW a few months ago with the idea of slipcovering them.
They are a hideous lovely green velvet underneath. Lol.
It took me about a week to finish this one, with plenty of time off in between for my back to recuperate!
I used my favorite painter’s dropcloth to cover this. Love the look and it fit my budget.
Do you notice the seam in the middle of the seat panel? Didn’t even notice it until I had the seat cover on.
Argh! May do this seat cover over again.
You can see the ladder I got at the antique barn last weekend with hubby, behind the chair. It was 11 feet tall so hubby cut it down to fit my 8 foot ceilings. Really luv these old ladders.
I still have another chair to do! Ugghh.
I think I’ll take some time off before starting it though!
Thanks for stopping by and blessings to you all.
