I have a few of these grain sacks lying around and when I picked up this drum lamp shade last week I knew exactly what I had planned for it. So this morning I have my son home sick so whilst he was getting some rest on the couch I started to cut out the pattern to cover the shade.
I think the lamp base might be better painted black but I couldn't wait to show you it all done. I don't think it needs any fancy braid as I like it just how it is.
I just cut and pinned the grain sack around the shade and used the hot glue gun to secure it.

You know that white mirror that I did recently for a friend well I thought I would tackle one of my own. I have had this huge mirror for ages and have lived with the gold original look but I'm afraid it just doesn't do my home justice. So on the weekend I finally applied the first undercoat in my new spray room. Stay tuned for the final look
Congratulations Kristine from The Painted Hive your lucky number 5 winner of the June edition of Real Living. Email me your details and I can get this in the post for you.

Last night Ange and I had the pleasure of attending Dare Gallery who had hooked up with Real Living Stylist Jason Grant. Jason gave a talk on how to style a room three different ways by using different cushions and props. We all received a good bag to take home which included the latest June issue of Real Living. Because I already have a copy I am giving mine away. So just leave a comment and on Monday I will draw the lucky winner.

Well I had my market stall on the weekend and it was a huge success. Managed to sell quite a bit of bric a brac I had lying around and received a great response from the locals. Thanks to all that came down and had breakfast it was a lovely morning.
