Do you want to see my latest purchase?
Here it is and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!
It's one of Kerri's latest masterpieces from her Driftwood Interiors etsy store. It's called Sea Coral III in Denim and its printed on beautiful fine art paper. I love the denim blue colour she's used and as soon as she had listed it on her shop I snapped it up :)
Don't you love it? And it helps with my plan to introduce an accent colour of dark blue to the living room.
So go check out Kerri's shop if you haven't already and buy up big before she becomes rich and famous and starts charging a bomb, hehehehehe.
And here is another item I've made to introduce some dark blue...
I took an old lamp shade and used some of the navy blue and white striped cotton I bought in the Lincraft sale the other day to cover it.
If you haven't covered a lamp shade before it's super easy (well it is when you use a drum shape) simply measure how much material you'll need to wrap around with a bit extra to fold over to make a clean join, cut it with enough at the top and bottom to wrap over onto the inside of the shade. Then lay the material out flat, peg one end of the material to the top and bottom of the shade then as you roll peg more pegs to secure it. Then glue the material to the inside and use the pegs to hold it until it's dry.
The lamp base has also had a make over as it used to be brass and I kept it as brass for years but I got tired of it and decided to spray it with the trusty metal spray that Lisa from Ledamae put me onto when she gave me the silver tray you can see the side of in this pic. See the post about the silver tray here. You can see the etched pattern on the lamp coming through the white paint and it gives it an interesting patina.
What do you think?
Here it is on the hall table along with the little blue and white turkish bowl I showed you last week.
And I've got another exciting project/find to show you in the next day or so which I stumbled across this morning! YAY!
Have a great day everyone!!!
