Everyday Spectacular

Imperfections. Ramblings. Life to the Full.


I have never been a crafty person. EVER.
Honestly I can barely draw stick people that don’t look like, well, sticks.
I dread the school projects that my children will inevitably want my help with.
I have never learned how to knit, sew or scrapbook.

However, since signing up for a Pinterest account, I feel a creativity gene has sprung up from the deep recesses of my not-so-creative soul.
Yep, I’m just putting it out there. I am going to try stretching myself to see if there is any possibiity that I actually can do some of things that I would never dreamed I could do.

Here is my one of my first projects…I bought this lamp at our thrift store for $5. It was truly ugly, sort of a faux wood-ish multi-colored monstrosity. But I wondered what would happen if I painted the lamp and the shade….
(perhaps I should also point out that I am not a photographer, but I think you’ll be able to figure that out all on your own.)

What do you think? Is there hope for me and my new-found crafty gene?

    Looks like a diamond in the rough.. Great possibilities and it is great you are finding time to “hobby”

    Sometimes I read your blog and feel like you were in my head, writing down my thoughts? I am so with you on this – and when I view blogs on crafts, or Pinterest, it inspires me too! Yours for instance inspires me to cook!! Great job on the lamp, she’s a beauty!
