It's literally been like 6 months since I stepped foot in Ann Taylor Loft, but Home Depot? Lowes? They know me on a first name basis over there now. Manicures & pedicures? Not since summer. For the past several months all my style energy has been directed toward this house. I guess that's why my heart skipped a beat when my husband surprised me the other day, not with a dozen roses, but with a couple of light fixtures I'd had my eye on at Home Depot.
I fell for these immediately, when I first saw them a few months ago. After choosing every single light fixture in this house over the course of the previous 9 months, I pretty much knew what was available out there, & I knew these were gonna be perfect for the basement craft room/family room.
However, I didn't see in them a ready-to-hang fixture, but rather a blank canvas begging for me to give them life. So, I had to go on a search for the perfect color green ribbon that I'd seen in my mind. After several days & two trips to JoAnn Fabrics (that's another story)... I found this ribbon & what was even better-it was self adhesive! So I had these shades re-vamped within minutes!
If you want to try this for some of your dull shades, you can also use craft glue or hot glue to adhere the ribbon. I even considered covering these in fabric, but maybe I'll do that in a couple years. I'll post the directions for how to do that some other day. Meanwhile, I love my new shades. Tell me what you think of them & what you guys have done with your dull shades.
