Today I worked on finishing the dresser (pictures tomorrow!) and the overhead light for the bedroom - I took an extra lamp shade that I bought for $10 on clearance awhile ago and put some ribbon on it
Ever wonder why you haven't seen the ceiling in any of my photos yet? Because it looks like this
Builder grade in EVERY newer house flush mounted light - nothing exciting about it ...
Now that we have a place to store the old light (which will be reinstalled when we move out) I can put whatever I want up there :)
And the best part is that it only took about 5 minutes - I glue ribbon and taped to secure it - wrapped around the shade and folded the edge over and glued and taped to hold it in place - and repeated two more times - a super easy way to add a bit of color to a plain shade
Now I just have to figure out how to mount it ...
I am very excited to share the dresser with you tomorrow - I think it turned out great and it definitely looks completely different!
