…the tripod lamp

I  was starting to see them in my retail shopping – high end & low end, but nothing quite suited my tastes. Until I found an old, wooden survey stand wired for a light bulb.

It’s super tall and perfect for this empty corner in my family room.

I found an extra large shade at RH.

The retail version goes something like this. Handsome at $1,400. Mine is a bit more scrappy, but anything for character.


…the sisal lamp

I inherited a two matching lamps and I thought I was going to chalk paint them until I thought of another idea.

I headed to Home Depot where – did you know – they actually sell large bags of sisal? I had no idea my carpet was actually made with what originally looks like rope. I pulled out a glue gun I bought probably 6 years ago and never opened and tried it out. It’s so easy!

Round and round and round and round and round and round and round.

I actually had exactly enough to cover all the ugly ceramic. It looks a bit uneven in the photo, but that’s actually the curves of the lamp.

It has a rather tall lamp shade, which I like. I’m planning on either gluing burlap on it or trying one of those digital downloads you can get on Etsy and iron on fabric. You know I mean? Graphique has alot of great vintage images:

…favorite things friday: grain sack love.

Want a quick way to get a really impactful, rustic tone in your space? Add grain sack. This could be a pillow, hand towels, lamp shades a table runner or just the iconic fabric. The grain sack could be antique or reproduction. The look is still there no matter what. You can find grain sack at Pottery Barn or vintage on Etsy. If you are at a barn sale and see grain sack get it! You will always have a place for it even if it’s just draped over a dining chair.
