This little treasure only cost me £25 which I think was a bargain, most free standing lamps these days are either chrome or too modern looking. What also caught my eye was the fact that she was off white with a hint of pink, Basically the exact same colour of the two Annie Sloan paints which I use frequently. I was so pleased that I didn't have to touch up or transform for once.
The lampshade is a little too small for this style of lamp but I am hoping to either create something or buy a lamp shade on Etsy. If any of my lovely followers have seen something which would look nice with the lamp let me know.
The perfect Annie Sloan match.
Check out the pop up tent...such a lovely feature to our front room.
On to the unfinished garden.
So the decking was complete and I then started on the bench, I mixed two cuprinol paints to achieve this very pale duck egg colour. Everything looked fab until the next day it rained, and the bench looked like someone had tipped Beer all over it. The only thing I think it could be is the original stain seeping through the wood.
I put fixed trellis up against the fence and painted it Country cream, I then added lights for a bit of sparkle. The garden is beyond being completed I have so many things to find in order to make it look cheerful for example plants, shrubs and a wishing well the list goes on.
I hope you are all well and putting your busy little minds into action I have a few things lined up for the weekend and yes it involves a paint brush!
