Since I went to a few yard sales on Saturday morning and found this...(for only $3!)


...I was able to move this into an empty corner in the dining area. I don't have much space, so I utilize what few empty corners I have, thus the empty corner in our dining area is now home of Isabella's new art desk...or as I like to call it, her homeschool corner :)




I also found this lamp...($1)



One little face lift later, and now it looks fabulous on my kitchen counter :) I got the idea and the know-how for my tufted lampshade from Sarah over at BlueCastle...she's a real lamp genius with tutorials galore!



Sorry for the glare in my pictures, it's been super duper bright lately, I don't even have to turn lights on during the day, you wouldn't think that would make it difficult to take pictures...but turns out, it does. So yeah, this has pretty much been my weekend...that and Isabella's chronic runny nose, humidifier, vapor rub, Benedryll, and Johnson's Vapor bath...whew, poor little feller, it's pitiful when babies get sick :( She's feeling her oats a little bit more today though, she's currently sitting at her art desk working on a masterpiece and chattering away to herself...I love that Noggin is NOT on right now...in fact, I think I'm going to unplug the TV while she's not paying attention...

boy does she look intent on creating in that pictue! Like her little homeschool corner and your new table and lamp. Are you going to paint the table white? I think I would.

I probably will paint it my faithful standby, Antique White...not sure though, I'm letting it sit plain for a while until I decide exactly what I want to do. There's a few techniques to "roughen it up" that I want to try too...

Lucky girl! Antique White paint is a staple in my house! Your lamp is adorable!

Hope your wee girl feels better soon!
