It seems we’re really working hard on our bedroom makeover these days– mostly because of our new self-imposed rule that we can’t work on another project until this one is completed… remember our project ADD? It’s only gotten worse. So we decided to ixnay all other projects until the bedroom is 100% complete. The sooner we finish it, the sooner we can move on to greener pastures (like the back yard!)
One major step to finishing the bedroom is accessorizing our dressers and nightstands. I haven’t even started, save for the two lamps we were given by Kevin’s mom (thanks Mary!) last winter. They’re simple white candlestick lamps that have tons of potential.
I just don’t know what sort of potential.
I’m not a big fan of the white on white on white of the shade, base, and table, so I think if anything I’d like to spraypaint the base and maybe cover the white shades (with burlap for texture?).
I’ve also considered putting these lamps by for the spare bedroom and going with something else here. I’m very fond of the trendy glass lamps out there these days (like the on below, on sale at our Target) and have even thought of DIYing something like the driftwood lamp below.
We’ve got to come up with something and soon. It’s going to be cool enough to start working on the back yard before too long (there’s not a single day in the 100s in the forecast!!) and we don’t want to waste any of the perfect fall weather working inside!
I need your advice! What would you do? Would you spray paint the candlestick lamps that we already own (and what color)? Would you save the candle sticks for the spare bedroom and buy new? Help! I’m drowning in options and indecision!
