At 7:29 a.m. I was blowing my hair dry and watching as all the surrounding schools scrolled their 'closed', across the T.V but of course not us! Ugh, I thought, "ok one more minute and I will be serious about getting out the door." And there it was in all it's glory:: Our school closed too!!
So I finished this lampshade that I was working on and am rather please with the result.
The tricky part was keeping it even because when I took the existing 1980's accordian shade off the metal there was nothing holding the top and bottom wires together.
The lamp itself was brass and I sprayed it white, it was a cast-off of my daughters. My mom gave it to her but she didn't like the brass (don't blame her). Now she wants it back. Again I don't blame her. Sorry. This isn't the first time she has wanted a cast off back. The lamp below used to have a soccer ball for a base. Again a gift for my daughter who plays volleyball! Again, Sorry-am I mean or what?
