I admit that I sometimes get ahead of myself. I'm the kinda gal who thinks every new lover is THE one, every new job is the best job I ever had, every new teapot is my favorite (yeah, the teapot issue is another post entirely).
Take for instance this idea that we can spray paint over lace to create decorative items. I saw some of these on Pinterest and elsewhere and they looked really lovely. http://offbeatbride.com/2011/07/spray-paint-through-lace http://pinterest.com/pin/4362930858495401/ http://pinterest.com/pin/120471358751751201/
I have used lace to imprint onto clay in ceramic class. Surely I could find a project for it in my house somewhere and heaven knows I have my share of spray paint in the basement.
So, I was off and running. I have this little lamp I recently bought for $5 at my local thrift store. It was the right shape and size for my entryway where I needed more light since the remodel.
My décor is neutral browns and beige with touches of very light blues and greens in the living room. So I got out my brown spray paint and picked up some lace strips for $1 at the thrift store.
