Crafts and LOST

If you are living under a rock (or aren't a LOSTie, how could you?!) and didn't know, last night was the premier episode of the last season of LOST.  I must admit I didn't get into the whole crazy LOST thing until a few seasons in.  But once I did, I went back and watched them all...and was even more confused.  It's that show that you watch and at the end of the hour you have maybe 2 answers to the 100's of questions you had before the show...and then 100 more questions about what when on in that hour!  But I'm hooked and I love it. 

Thanks to the miracle of DVR, I started watching last night about 30  minutes into the first hour (which was a recap of the past 5 seasons).  So I didn't catch up to live TV until the last 5 minutes or was awesome. 

Have I mentioned that I love my DVR?

Anyway, to make myself feel better about neglecting my family and locking myself into the bedroom for 2 hours before the kids went to bed, I decided to work on a project that I've had sitting around stewing for a while.

My parents are remodeling/redecorating their house.  Score for me, because we are getting all the stuff they aren't using anymore.  Much to my husband's dismay when we leave their house with a car load full of "junk" every weekend.  :)

Mom gave me these lamps from their bedroom.


The base is really pretty, it's a kind of yellow/amberish color...and the shade, well, not really my our style at all.  So this is what they turned into.


That's burlap folks.  I've been hoarding all the burlap I can find lately because of all the projects I find online.  So I finally whipped some out along with my trusty glue gun.  I still need to put some trim on the inside of the shade to cover up the edges of the burlap but I couldn't wait to put something on here...since I've neglected the blog for so long lately.

I'm on a house kick lately.  It's about time I got my butt in gear again! 

More projects to come soon!
