My Dear TeoT. A Sneak Peak is all I have.

I don’t know what else to do except to share these three pieces that I picked up recently for a grand total of $19.50. I have grand plans for each one. We will see what materializes. Your thoughts and ideas are appreciated.

Old Nasty Chandelier with copper and insano glass shade.
The Plan: I’ve already popped the glass out and am thinking of other uses for it. I’ll be spray painting this a high gloss white and popping it into my bathroom ceiling to hang over the toilet. I’ll replace the old amber glass sections with something. Not sure yet…. thinking maybe just some soft rice paper.

Old Office Chair for New Office
I thought this chair had a nice shape. I need a wide base – cause I spend about 20 of the 24 hours a day sitting in front of my computer screen, and I like to cross my legs up in the chair. As much as I’d love to slap a pretty patterned fabric on this – I believe it will stay as is for now. The only modification will be adding some casters for a little height and mobility. Not bad for $9.00.

Johnny 5 lamp
I love you! He’s so cute huh? He came brown – I pretty much immediately took his head off and gave him a high gloss red shade. He’ll be sitting by my Crate & Barrel chair in the Office and one day you can see him in action. IF I can ever get that room finished.

Update on the office by the way : I’m on the lookout for shelving, window treatment, a rug and some time. Oh ya – and I have my artwork – but need to get it printed. I have tons of pieces that need framing. I’ll do a post on the woes of framing someday. I could totally write a book about that.
