What I’ve Been Up To {Home Office Update}

My home office is slowly but surely evolving into the Mom Cave I’ve always wanted!  Though I’m anxious in a way to get it finished, I have to admit I’m enjoying the process, too.  Of course, having my desk up and running is key to this enjoying-the-process mindset. 🙂

This week I tackled the lamp on the desk.  Remember this?

It’s one of a pair of buffet lamps I bought several years ago… not loving it on my new desk!
So I headed to Target and used a gift card I’d gotten for my birthday to pick up this lamp and a simple drum shade.
The balls are actually acrylic, not glass, but I love the modern clean look and the price was right! On a side note, the desk top photographs a pale yellow, but it’s actually a creamy white (Porter Paint Velvet White).  I wasn’t sure what I’d do with the lamp shade, so I toyed with some different ideas (cover with fabric? add some trim?) and finally decided to break out my paints and stencils.
TA DAH!!
Hello, Lover!  I’ll be sharing the super simple how-to next week. 
 Plus, I got an urge to paint this $15 flea market purchase {from 10 years ago} as part of my on-going lighten and brighten the family room project.
The brown stain wasn’t working next to my chocolate suede sofa so it’s time for change!
It’s been a busy week, but more to come.  Enjoy your weekend, friends!
 

Happy Decorating!

    Hi Heidi, I just discovered your blog. That's a great desk I'm eager to see how it looks painted. Did you change out the knobs as well?
