Lampapalooza



The Nester is hosting a Lampapalooza Party.
I'm all about a party and I love lamps...so here goes.



This is my newest lamp project. I got it at the flea market in Ft. Worth.



Here is the before. I just tied some ribbons on to make a shade, because we know I'm not going to sew anything!



This lamp is in my dining room. I just added some ribbon and a giant flower.







My husband made me this colander light and it's one of my favorites. He's one of my favorites too!



He also added outlets to the top of my cabinets so I can have lamps up there too!







This is the chandelier in my kitchen. It is from Ikea. I got the beads from Hobby Lobby. Just string them on a wire and start wrapping. If anything stands still long enough at my house, it gets beaded!



I painted this chandelier apple green. It's hanging in my pink room.


And I can't take credit for this bird house lamp, but I LOVE it. I wanted it for years and I had to wait until I had the money to buy it. That's not usually one of my strong points.

And this little lamp is in my guest bathroom.



Thanks for coming to my lamp party!

I have a very random question for you...have you ever been to Forney, Texas to go antiquing? I live in Oklahom and my mom and I are going to Forney next weekend. I was going to see if you had any recommendations? Feel free to leave a comment on my blog (www.thehofmannfam.blogspot.com).

Thanks!!

Thanks for the details on the ribbon lamp... I noticed a while back in the Kelly's Korner tour and loved it... I'm going to make one for my kids' playroom! I also got a playroom project in mind that I got from your modge podge counter in your laundry room! I absolutely ADORE every single thing about your home, your style, and your taste... it's fantastic! You are extremely talented! Thanks for sharing!

I just love the Ikea lamp and the green chandelier is fun too!

amberdawn said...

I absolutely love all your lamps! It makes me want to go find new lighting! But, that is definitely going to have to wait-'cause our money tree is wilting over here!

I love the painted house-it looks great!

PS-as far as your 902010 comment- I feel the same way! Graduated with them, and there is a bond there! :) Glad to know that we are both slighty ridiculous together!
