I love making stuff. All kinds of stuff. This past weekend I decided to make a lamp. I thought I was going to get to use my new drill and ceramic/glass drill bit, but my make-a-lamp kit did not require me to drill a hole into the Ikea vase that I had chosen for my base. I finally got to use the pattern from that pillow on something. I love that pattern, but I just am not a huge fan of excessive pillows all over the couch - so I had to find another place for it. Luckily the lamp we used to have on that stand was ugly, so after some painting and assembling - voila!
