A Bright Idea
I will admit, that since I've been back from vacation I've been to the thrift store more than usual. I guess you could say I'm making up for lost time... Needless to say the thrift gods have been good to me since I've returned and I've picked up a few great pieces over the past two weeks. (keep your eyes peeled for the next Isabella's pop-up shop. There are lots of new and amazing things to be had)
I've been trying to stay away from home accents since our house is pretty much set, but occassionally coming across that perfect chair, or lamp can prove challenging to this girl's willpower. And so on Friday when I cam across this sturdy, mid-century modern lamp I couldn't tear myself away. Teak seems to have that effect on me.
Knowing that it needed a little sprucing up got my hamster wheel turning. And so as I drove home, it came to me! It was going to be as simple as covering up that tired black vinyl. "Not a bad use for using some vintage wallpaper" I said to myself. And a few snips with my scissors and swipes with some glue it was a whole new lamp.
