DIY CUSTOM LAMPSHADE

For the past few weeks, we’ve been on the hunt for a lamp for the new foyer table. Everything we found was either too small, not the right material, or not the style we were looking for. I was laying in bed the other night, going through old photos on my cell phone when I stumbled on this photo of a lamp I spotted at Tuesday Morning way back in August… Yeah, I take photos while I shop. I’m weird…

TABLE, MIRROR, FRAMES… OH MY!

Today, we’re back with an update on the foyer progress! Since our chat with Sabrina, we’ve been able to find the essential “base pieces” we needed.

I HEART UPS

It’s here!!! The chair for the guest room has arrived! I’ve been anxiously awaiting this moment ever since we clicked the “Check Out” button on Overstock.com a little over a week ago. About five short minutes ago, the UPS man dropped her off at her new home… Now I just have to lug the 40+ lb box into the house and put it together. See you back here in a few hours… (Btw, we really need to power wash the…
