I didn't get a before photo of the lamp I revamped.
However this is the same corner in the powder room
before it was redone!

and revamped lamp

There has been a lot of revamping going on in this house lately with little time for blogging. It must be done by February 2010 to get the one time economic tax incentive! So what better time to buy paint, put in pantries, clean and renew worn out bits and pieces in the house. Unfortunately I am very restricted but the kids are taking a big initiative on the bulky jobs, while I take charge of the small details when I can.

It all started in June when Bryan was away on business. Pepper pulled our powder room apart and primed it. She wanted the room back together by the time he returned a few days later. It's almost completed, just last week she found material for curtains.I repainted this lamp and a small table to hold excess toilet paper!

I've primed a few big canvases but have yet to do the paintings for the room! When I was a kid if you wanted something to look new you just painted it! Growing up we were all about recycle, way before it was fashionable!

The blue was not turquoise enough so it needed a revamp.

Table revamped once again!
Much better in person!

The other thing I do is buy seasonal tables and items and paint them. Our christmas tree shop is good for this. most of my tables had xmas art that I painted over.
