Hey guys! Happy Wednesday! I thought you might want another little sneaky peek at my craft and sewing room. Frankly, I couldn’t keep these lights a secret anymore. Check it out:
A quick snap of the paint job. It’s a soft sagey, mint green. I got my color inspiration from a blog of all places. Anyone else follow A Bowl Full of Lemons? She recently changed her blog design and the minute I saw her color scheme, I knew that’s what I wanted in my craft room.
OK, now that we have color scheme covered – let me just tell you how much I’m in love with the lighting we added. Serious love y’all…serious. There were no overhead lights and the big paper ball light we had in the office in the apartment did nothing to light the space at night, so on a trip to Ikea, I took a walk through their lighting department and saw these:
I may or may not have squealed in the middle of the store…just a little. OK, a lot. They are a new edition to their lighting collection called Lyrik. It had just the feminine, slightly country, slightly shabby chic look I was going for and at $19.99 per shade (we bought two), I was sold! We already had one of the hanging light cords so we grabbed another one while we were there. In the picture above you can see the cords hanging off to the side, but those won’t be so unsightly forever. I’m going to make a cover for them out of some pretty fabric.
Well? What do you think so far?
