I'm still here.....

Still gathering things for my living room transformation.
I found a pair of matching brass lamps at Goodwill, both for under 8 dollars.
whooohooo score!
It seemed simple, sand and paint.
I've seen pictures all over the place of before and afters, surely I can master that....right?
How can it fail?
(Sorry for the fuzzy pics, in moving things around my camera went missing.
So these are those handy cell phone pictures, everyone is raving about.)

I chose an orange color to pop in front of my dark chocolate roman shades and to also bring a touch of the color across the room. It's amazing in my head, sometimes I spend too much time there.
I even rewired them.  That was a lot easier than the painting.
What you can't see in these pictures is the drips and splotches.
I tried to paint them outside but the sun made the metal hot in one area and the wind cold in the other.
So the paint dried all funny.
It is not breath taking.
Or amazing.
Trust me I will fake it and hide it so you will not know unless your nose is sticking to it.

Looking at the below picture you are probably thinking,..."how is that going to go in that room?!?!" 
Truuuuust me, it's all in good time my dear, allllll in good time.
