Maran's Lamp Redo

I have this fabulous friend with fabulous taste and she's a fabulous DIYer - but blogless!  So I'll be posting a few of her things on my blog here when my brain gets foggy.  She was here from Chi-town visiting (I got  her almost a whole day to my whole self!) so she uploaded some pics of her latest projects onto my computer - woo hoo!!
Here we are back in 2007 when we went on a cruise down in the Caribbean.  The only way I can remember the year is because I was pregnant with my second little munchkin.  Talk about awesome - all the food you want and not having to care about gaining weight!  Anyways, I'm on the left, she's on the right.

Before.  Not a bad lamp.  But not too exciting either.  Nothing says, "hey, look at me!"  In fact, I'm not even sure it would say "hi" if you walked in the room.  Probably more like stares at it's feet and hopes you turn on the  lamp on the other side of the room.
But Maran fixed that with some deep turquoise. Isn't everything better in that color?  Me thinks so.
And there she is.  See, you really don't have to go out and buy new accessories.  Just give what you've got a facelift and keep that billfold in your purse where it belongs.  (Or wallet in your back pocket if you're one of my few and far between male readers!)

  1. Nice lamp redo! But why is Maran blogless? Is she unable to blog or blog-challenged? On a blogfree regimen?

  2. It's definitely a stand out now! Great lamp makeover.Stopping by from Power of Paint Party.

  3. Wow! That pic looks like her house belongs in Better Homes & Gardens!
