I fell in love with this minty green, curly snail ceramic ornament the first week it was official that the fibro beach shack was mine. Sitting very dusty high and forgotten on a shelf at one of my fave junk shops, I immediately knew this beauty t was destined for a greater purpose in her life, that of a lamp base in the fibro beach shack. When I bought her home the sailor said "Yuck" and my friends were not at all complimentary, ugly, vulgar, kitch (now, I didn't mind that), awkward, cheap etc etc., so she sat in the corner of my studio for months feeling like the ugly duckling waiting for her chance to make the trip up to the beach shack. Whilst she sat there over the weeks I googled and googled and finally came across 'Shady Dave's Lamps'. Shady Dave's business is to make ornaments and such object d'art into lamp bases, I was just a little bit excited. And here she is all ready to be adorned with a lovely shade. On Saturday I popped her in the car and off we went to visit the girls at 'No Chintz. Being a larger shade then the little funky shade I covered for the yellow ginger jar, I didn't feel like tackling this one by myself. So here we are..............
I love it!
This is the quilt cover that will dominate the other bedroom. Very navy and white.
Trims and such
Couldn't help but pick the trim first and style it of course.
I have picked a lovely cream heavy linen and this trim for the bottom. It's rather plain but I think the lamp will stay and given that I can always work the bedding around this simple palette.
What do you think of my lamp base? Love it or hate it? Come on don't be shy.
The search continues for a rug for the lounge floor, and artwork for the bedrooms, the final coat of exterior paint goes on this week. Yeah! so lots more pics next week.
