Mantel Attempt 2
Ok, so the more I looked at my mantel the more I kept thinking that something wasn’t quite right. I still don’t think this is it. I need height. I NEED to go shopping . . . but that’s going to have to wait for awhile. Until then this might have to do. I don’t know. Which do you like better? The Before After or the After After?
And you might notice my poor lamp to the right. Yes, this lamp has no shade. It has never had a shade. I bought it for $20.00 years ago at a Pottery Barn outlet thinking that I could easily find a shade for it. I think that was almost (don’t give away your age) ten years ago. I have never been able to find anything to fit it. I have even gone to a regular Pottery Barn store, and that hand nothing to fit. I’ve went to the hard ware stores. The screw things that they had to hold a lamp shade won’t fit. I think it most have held a glass shade of some sort. Any suggestions can I can possibly fix this? I thought about just making one, but not quite sure how to start.
