Anyhoo, I'm not ready for any big reveals quite yet, but I did want to share my daughter's lamp with you.
Olivia has had a white pig lamp in her bedroom for a decade or so. I have tried many times over the years to eliminate the pig, but no deal. She was adamant about it then, and at 15 years old, she is adamant still. The pig has to stay.
The pig sported a pink & white gingham shade from Pottery Barn. It was cute, but certainly would not match with her new bedding now.
Once my pig elimination attempts were thwarted, I knew I had to do something about the lamp shade at least. I stated aloud, "I don't know what to do with that shade. I don't think I have the skill to recover it."
And then it happened. That sage offspring of mine came out with it...
"Well, you are the creator of the lampshade, aren't you?"
Stunned, I looked at her and replied, "Yes, yes, I guess I am."
The lampshade that she spoke of is this one:
So, with a little ruffled trim & my trusty glue gun, I made this:
Here it is donned by the pig:
Somehow, in a way that I can't comprehend, I have now come to adore the pig. Could it be that he was just in need of a more stylish "hat" to make him acceptable to me? Hmmm. I wonder.
I do have to tell you, that sunny yellow lamp shade is just what I needed. It seems as though we may not get a Summer this year. The weather has been truly awful. Chilly, rainy & gloomy. It's so depressing.
I hope you are having a great week and that the sun is shining brightly for you! Talk to you soon!
