Colorful crochet granny squares with white background as lamp shade cover, by Susan Carlson of Felted Button | Colorful Crochet Patterns

::Milk Glass Lamp with Granny Shade::

Waiting...waiting...waiting...this little treasure is just waiting for me to get on the ball and redecorate my bedroom! 

I found this lamp at the thrift store (Deseret Industries) for a mere $5. It was a sad little lamp with an ugly orange-brown wood finish and no shade. The drum shade was another find on another day and I quickly made a granny square cover using my stash.


I love the happy bright colors and even though the shade doesn't fit well, I decided to introduce the two. A blind date of sorts. Kind-of like two people that meet and don't seem well suited, may not look like the perfect couple together, but you overlook the flaws and "misfittedness" of them. A little pink paint over the dismal brown, white spray paint over the brass...and I like it! Actually, I love it! Maybe, just maybe, I'll buy a shorter harp. Maybe not.


Will my bedroom project ever occur? Sadly, I have lived in this house for over three years, and it has not occurred yet. But the bedding is purchased, paint color selected, and sitting chair nearly ready! Oh, I plan for it to be a little bit of heaven.

Let's "get 'er done!"
 
By the way, the love of my life actually said he doesn't mind a pink bedroom! Pretty terrific guy I married, huh?!
