I am fortunate enough to have my dream job of staying at home with my two beautiful daughters. I've been happily married for 6 years and counting! I am a lover of all things french, all things pink, and anything that sparkles. Serioulsy, my husband calls me a crow. I love baking, crafting and throwing big parties, especially if they have a theme. Right now, I'm in love Pinterest. My Hero is Heather from Sprinkle Bakes and my mom.

Coffee Filter Lamp Shade and just a dab of Flamazine Cream.

What do you do on a Sunday afternoon when one of your kids is at her Nana's house and the baby is napping and your husband just got back from fishing all weekend? 

Refurbish an old lamp, of course.

Get your minds out of the gutter.

For real though, I hot glued over 300 coffee filters onto an old lamp shade.

And lost 2 fingertips to burns in the process. 

So if there are a few typos it's, forgive my gimpy hand.

I found this picture of a lamp on Pinterest, (my new obsession) and I just had to try it!
It was taken from a blog by a lady in Oregon that is SO beautiful! (both her and her blog) 
She's a genius with home decor and refurbishing furniture.

 Seriously, go look at it right now.

This was the before...

Just getting started...


Painted and proudly displayed!

And I'm totally in love with my 'new' lamp!

PS. There's a small chance that I might spray adhesive the filters and glitter it....
