So, in my past post…..here……I shared with you how I am trying to re-do my “traditional” style lamp.
I am still struggling with my shade……
BUT I AM SO CLOSE!
Trudy emailed me a suggestion of what she had used to make this cutie pie shade…….
“Cover white shade with beigy osnaburg fabric, it’s thin enough to let light through and I think you could glue it on with spray glue”
But I didn’t have “osnaburg fabric”……or any fabric…..but I did have spray adhesive!
I was trying to figure out what to use and the burlap shades were soooooo expensive, so they were out!
Burlap Tapered Drum Lamp Shade
I needed the $69.00 one of course.
I was going for this look……..
And I was NOT getting it.
Until Trudy’s comment and email got my wheels turning….
Isn’t that the great thing about blogging?
We are inspired from comments, and from seeing what others share….I love it !
So…..it is still in process…….and I can only give you just a peek.
For my fabric….I had an old tablecloth, that I had gotten from a yard sale and never used.
I had adhesive…………..
But it’s not there yet……it has been a “booger”.
So close, yet so far away!
And I can’t finish it for a couple of days.
Unless, you all want to surprise me and come over and finish it for me.
I will finish it, I just wanted you guys to see how close it is!
It may end up being my favorite recent project….for realz….plus, I am ready to start on some other lamps!
I am so excited!!
But listen, do me a favor please!!!!
Off the blogging topic we would like your real life prayers.
Romeo goes in tomorrow for total knee replacement…..dang yoga(it actually is wonderful and i will share that later as well)……but we would love your prayers!

His knee is shot and it he has put it off as long as he can……so he is READY!
Keep him in your prayers!
I will update you and we have a SPECIAL, SPECIAL guest blogger Wednesday. I can’t wait for you to meet her!!!!
Actually, I haven’t asked her yet….because I need your help in “coaxing” her out.
Let her know you want to hear from her.
You will love her!
