I bought this light and painted it a cobalt blue to go in my new blue and green "preppy" bedroom.
It's a bit large for the dresser, but it's what I've got for now so I'm making due.
The blue, while it matches, was a bit too dark for my taste.
Then I thought of this bundle of rope.
I spotted it in someone's garage and wanted it so much that I was skeptical that the owner would sell it to me. It had endless possibilities...
While he was tallying my purchases, I asked how much he wanted for it. He said, "you want that? it's yours." I loved him instantly.
And off I went with my rope and a head full of ideas of what I will wrap with it...
Here is the view from my bed into the mirror. It looks so much better in person. It needs a lamp. Not because I have space to fill, but simply because I need more light.
And the blue lamp and ball of heavy twine. (Note the pile of furniture waiting for me to paint!)
Wearing a heavy coat of "permanent spray adhesive." This stuff is NO JOKE. It think it could bond the lamp to a car. It took more than a little Goof Off to get it off my hands when I was done.
*I spray painted my entire garage white and added some beadboard so my collections were separate from the lawn mower and surf boards.
(ps It took me under 15 minutes, however I would recommend painting a lighter color underneath to hide the small gaps)
