Weekend Recap

I started out my weekend with a lamp makeover on Friday night. I had stolen David's lamp from his night table a few weeks ago so I had been on the hunt for a new one. I found a lamp at Goodwill for $2 that I thought would do the trick. It wasn't very cute but I thought I could handle doing a mini-makeover on it. Here's the before:
It actually had three of those wire & bead things on it, but I forgot to take a picture before I disassembled them. Here's what it looks like now:
Not a huge transformation, but much better than the original. I already had the spray paint and fabric on hand. The fabric was actually from an old curtain I had.


On Saturday my mom and I ventured to Sioux Falls for a little shopping. We had a lot of fun. I always enjoy hanging out with my mom. We spent a lot of time in Hobby Lobby! They had 50% off scrapbook paper, so we both picked some up for projects. I picked up this little guy at Dollar Tree. Dave surprised me with these when he got home from work last night.
What a guy!! Gerbera daisies are my favorite flower.
Today I've ran a few errands and that's been about it.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
