The Great ReDecorate of '08

I am redecorating my life! And by my life, I mean my apartment. And by my apartment, I mean my living room.

The inspiration? This lamp, my latest sidewalk rescue project!

I am horrible at remembering to take before pictures, but lucky for me, it was from Ikea (just imagine it with a busted shade and looking like its previous owner didn't clean the house all that often).

Now as far as the Great ReDecorate of '08 is concerned, everything hinged on finding just the right fabric for a new lampshade, and I was absolutely thrilled when I found this one from Lindylou Fabrics. And FYI, Etsy is becoming one of my favorite venues for supplies.

The fabric has tons of colors - including everything I needed, plus everything that was missing from my life. And it has already inspired even more great Etsy purchases. Updates to come...
