2. So what if I switched out the shade with my new brown beauty? Hmmm. It’s okay. Still a bit boring though.
3. Then I remembered I had this cute milk glass lamp in the basement. What if we try the cute brown shade with the milk glass? Hmmm. Now I feel drawn to the milk glass, but I don’t like the shade with it. The shade seems way too big for the lamp base.
4. So perhaps the other shade would work here? Uh, no. Hate. it.
5. Okay, what if we go over and steal the shade off of Hubby’s lamp on his nightstand? Hmmm. These two things don’t really look like they fit together. Too much texture or something. Ugh. See? Things don’t always go smoothly when trying to switch it up.
Point of this post? I have no idea. Let me quickly come up with one. Ahem, Goodwill is a great place for deals, but your purchases don’t always turn into fantastic creations. Sometimes you have to be very creative to repurpose those “must have finds”. I guess I’m still caught in the middle of that creativity :).
How about you? Pick up anything good from Goodwill that didn’t quite work the way you had planned?
