>My first DIY!


Before and After… well… ok there will be an after. *sigh* I’m not the brightest and I completely forgot to take a picture of my before lamp. Basically it was a wicker cylinder that was falling apart and kinda gross looking.

A lot like this… only uglier… and on an ugly metal base. 🙂 Anyway, I picked up the beauty at my grandmother’s house (ready to go out to the trash) along with some spray paint in a fancy named color I will call “white.” Now of course things can’t be too simple… so this few hour project has turned into half a week so far. It’s not my fault though! The weather was a sunny 90 degrees when I got started… and now it’s 40 something and raining! ugh! Anyway, after pictures to come, my loves!

Thanks for stopping by!

About anestinthemaking

Hi! I'm Kristi! I'm a mom, a wife, a daughter, a friend. I'm a newbie to sewing and blogging, but I'm excited to get started! Sewing is the first hobby I've really had in a long time. In high school, I sang, I played the piano, I played in the band, I wrote in journals. I went off to college, got married, started a family, and lived a life without hobbies. How boring?! Then I started reading blogs. One thing led to another and soon I was at my co-worker's house borrowing her sewing machine! I haven't looked back since! Sewing is a release for me. It's so much fun to create beautiful and useful things. It's fun to be learning something new, and it's fun to share it with you! So welcome! Take a look around, and let me know you're here! I love to meet people and respond to every message I get! And I can't wait to meet you!
