There I was last thursday minding my own business at Renaissance thrift store....Really I was really on the hunt for some trashy tacky stuff for WTF? Tuesday! And I saw this...
Here it is with my other thrifty find...
A scorpio mug from Federal Glass.
I ran back to the car like a maniac! Imagine a Pyrex I don't have....the fever is trechterous...I start yearning for patterns I didn't really care for!
Now at Vonlipi's house of Pyrex (lol) we have been checking off things from the to do list (and trust me the list is L-O-N-G!
I finally make the list of parts to buy to install the dining room lamp. We bought said parts and with some help (mainely on the mental side) I was able to install this:
Ok I admit it doesn't look like much in daylight and I had to get used to it...
But at night YAOWZAA!
BAD PICTURE ALERT!
It looks much better in person and makes a real groovy motif on the ceiling.
It is just the kind of light we were looking for!
Rattan lampshade (thrifted) 3$
Lamp hanging kit 15$
Lamp hanging experience priceless
Total 18$ plus the pesky tax
I'll say it's a great thrifty deal!
Have a great night
Who do you think will be winning DWTS?
Personnaly it's a toss between Rob and J.R (sorry Ricki)
