New Vintage Romance



As I stated yesterday, I have been redoing some things around the house.
Rearranging here putting things there....this just leads to a snowball effect for the rest of the home

I have had these lamps for almost 9 years, they were in are first apartment here and they have lived a long life but it was time for a drastic change. They looked like this to begin with.

and now look like this....

I am loving them, a soft 15 watt glow is so romantic. Spray painted High Gloss Black
I have added hanging lampshades from vintage wire baskets and paper garlands.

While back home this summer I stumbled into a tiny dirtbag resale shop, thanks to my brother for tipping off of its location, I found this 1940s day dress. Light blue, with pink flowers and black and white bows all over it. Rick rack trim on the ruffles and pockets in black. OH, I adore it and since it doesn't come anywhere near fitting me, I put it up flowing off the wall.

Surrounding it with my new Owl Lanterns, the mod fits so perfect now.

This makeover cost nothing but a can of High gloss spray paint.
Stay tuned for what else I have sprayed this color....
