The Pink Lamp Has a New Home...

My friend Sharon and "Huntington House" partner was gifted with a curb side find.  She was excited about the her new found treasure and emailed me this photo.  She had already primed the discarded desk when she sent me this photo.  This was going to be our latest treasure which would find it's new home at the Tea Party Castle.  It didn't look like much,  but I knew that Sharon would work her painting magic.


Did I mention that she is a gifted painter?  After she had painted, we added the tulle skirt.  The tulle had a wonderful shimmer to to. Once we got the tulle on, we knew it needed a bit more "BLING".


We added two large bows and  for the BLING we added a large rhinestone in the center of the bow.


Can you ever use to many rhinestones?  I don't think so.


Take a look at the wonderful painting. 
 Sharon said it only took her about an hour to do this!


I just love the soft pastel colors. 
 I think you know by now that my favorite color is PINK!


Here's a close up of all the detail painting.  Visit Sharon's blog "Great Paint for Great Homes",
and see some of her other wonderful projects.


Remember the lamp re-do from my previous post? 
Well now the girly lamp  has found it's new home. 
 It is perched on top of the new desk at the Tea  Party Castle. 


The desk was also given a crystal drawer pull for some extra Bling!  I think the lamp and the desk are a perfect pair.  I enjoyed working with Sharon on another project.  It's fun to work with someone who is so creative. Once you start working together it's amazing  what you can create.

Well the weekend is here and there's lots of creative ideas to read about.  I'll be linking up this creation at the following sites....

I have a similar table in my craft room that I am using for my sewing machine. I have already painted it white and am now deciding how I will dress it up a bit more. The shape is similar to the one you have shared with us. They were called "kidney" tables and were dressing tables or vanities. My Dad made the one I have for my Mom.
The tulle skirt that you added was exactly how they used to look. Mine originally had wooden arms that crossed over where the drawer is and that the skirt would be attached to and you were able to swing them open to get to the drawer.
Even though I am using it now as a sewing table, I think I may "play" a bit more with it.
Thanks for the inspiration!!
I also just watched some of your videos and they were just great!!

Self Sagacity said...

Nicely done! I wouldn't have been so creative with that plain looking table - the before. I have a rocking horse - got it at a garage sale that is currently painted blue and white, and I want to repaint it for my daughter, have any ideas on where I can get some tips?
