Lindy if you are reading this please quit after the first pic unless you want to see your super late birthday present!!! :)
So our upper floor is going through a bit of an overhaul, again I will explain later but I am in the process of moving my craft room into a different room and not been feeling like going into it lately to craft!
BUT.......I have been feeling the crafty DIY urge!
I don't know if you remember but a while ago my hubby and I went shopping to spend the last of our gift cards from the wedding.
Well one of the thigs we bought were these lamps, for $40 each at Home Sense. Now the lamp base is fabulous, but the shades were this horrible, icky metallic blue. I wanted to find new shades but couldn't find anything I really loved. Maybe I'm being too picky or maybe I just was really in the mood for a DIY!
Sorry, I didn't take a before picture. I hated them so much i ripped them apart before I thought about it!
I found some fabulous fabric at a warehouse fabric store in Calgary and spent about 1 1/2 hours working on this the other night.
Please forgive the terrible picture, I took this at night!
I am so proud of myself! Now I have to do the other one!! LOL!
Isn't that base fabulous though? I couldn't resist those lamps.
The other crafty thing I made recently is for my neighbour for her birthday. Unfortunately it was over a week ago & I haven't given them to her yet!!
So bad I know!
They are coasters made using 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" tiles and scrapbook paper.
You can find the tutorial here on the cottage home.
I think I have found a use for the thousands of 12x12 papers I have been hoarding for so long!!
I would also some day like to try these ones:
The tutorial can be found here at The Tip Junkie. Which is a super cool crafty blog by the way!
Anyway, that is some of what I have been up to lately.
Thanks for stopping by!
