We got up Saturday morning and Brett said he'd take me wherever I wanted to go.
I chose the Salvation Army Thrift Store in Fayetteville. I haven't ever been there and I like to try most thrift stores at least once. This one ended up being awesome! Brett even got an extremely nice suit jacket for $8. My powers of influence have officially been put to use full force. :) Anyhow, I always have a running list of DIY projects in my mind.. just watching for the right tools to make them happen.
So this is the "BEFORE" lamp I bought for $6.

A few good coats of paint, hot glue, and fabric later and it's looking a lot less Salvation Army and a lot more "Sara". :)
What's even better? That's chalkboard paint on the base of the lamp. :) What will I write there? Who knows? Who cares! What fun! :)
