Here is a new lamp I worked up for the extra room in our little condo.
I use this room as an office and it has a hide-a-bed couch for visitors...which I rarely have had since we moved. Is there something I need to know?
These are vintage Old Pal bait/minnow buckets.
The graphics are wonderful and bright. There's that red color popping up again.
Each bucket is different, but the same size and shape.
For the shades, I used a vintage french dust skirt.
The contrast detail at the top is original and we slightly shortened the length.
Using a plain linen shade as a base,
we slip covered it with a single seam at the back and attached it with stitching at a few spots along the top to prevent it from moving around.
You could probably use glue as well and maybe skip the rear seam all together.
My office set up is pretty bare bones but it works for now.
I needed a really narrow desk in order for the couch to be folded out as a bed.
This is a reclaimed wood product, actually a console, from Halo Styles that sits on wood saw horse legs.
The down side to this desk is I can't spread anything out and I haven't found a good solution for the printer yet...any ideas
I was thinking of a basket...maybe?
I know.... is my computer huge...or what!
The chairs are smallish, vintage wicker, with great old green paint
I had a few yards of the Bennison floral left over from the dining room chairs and I like mixing florals together so I used it for these chair cushions.
I added a 1/2 inch flanged welting for some detail.
Keeping this room really bright and simple was the priority but it still has to function as an office and a bedroom.
Here is sneak peek of some of the other items in this room.
Now where did I leave my scissors?
