The Little BLUE Lamp

Oh I'm loving my 'NEW' $5 thrift store lamp!
The color brightens up my living room and brings out the blue
in my map coasters and map foot locker.
 The before wasn't bad but I wanted something brighter....
 So I brushed on a sample of Glidden's Bermuda Bay.

 I always have my little helper around....
Can't ya tell he's the LIFE of the party:-)
 Well that shade is just boring.......
I have been lovin' all the rosettes I've been seeing all over blogland..
So I took an old curtain panel 
($1 from the fabric bin at my thrift store) and torn some strips.
Simply tie a knot in the end of your strip
 Wrap and twist around til your desired size
 
 Hot glue in place....so much better:-)
Oh it goes so well with my coasters and map foot locker! 
Check out all the places I party!

I love this lamp! I found it through a linky party.
I am starting my own linky party this Tuesday! It's the first one. I would love it if you would participate! It's called $10 Tuesdays and it's for things that cost less than $10 and take 20-30 mins (ish) to complete. I love inexpensive and quick projects and I'm guessing others will too ;) Thanks so much for considering.
