With the palette I dragged home a few weeks ago already transformed into a precious pair of DIY bookshelves for my kitchen, I couldn’t leave his partner in crime hanging out in the carport all by their lonesome. I had big plans for this mannequin stand—an estate sale steal for $10!
But let’s be honest, life around the construction site can be crazy town at times, and with one fabulous mailbox revamp the main focus of my DIY brain cells this week (check back tomorrow for the reveal!) I wanted to give this soon-to-be-lamp a purpose with little effort for the time being. Have my cake. Eat it too.
Soooo…I found a lampshade tucked away in a closet…
And wheeled this bad boy into my master bedroom right next to those darling divas I framed up earlier in the week.
Someday he’ll be able to shine his little lamp heart out, but for now, I feel really good about him just looking the part.
