Study lamp & books.

It's been a long week... Felt like my body collapsed on friday evening. Was like my brain said to my body: "Oooh, spring vacation!!! Sunshine, sunblock, BBQ at the beach, finish my projects/work, socializing, fun-fun-fun!!!" ...& my body replied with *shutting down*. xD Haha! 
BUT! I managed to finish one of my lamp projects before completely collapsing. :) Wasn't that much to do really. Just had to get off the awful blue-green'ish smelly fabric that was on it & replace it with something else. It was going in my son's room, as a study lamp. Sooo I wasn't allowed to make it too feminine. :p It was only wires...so I took a piece of plastic from an old IKEA lamp I had, just to 'fireproof' the inside. Then I took a sheet from a gigantic atlas I bought a while back & glued it on the outside of the plastic. Then fixed the whole thing inside the lamp screen thingy. Not my best job, but hey - I was dead tired! ;p

Dismantled on my desk... ;)

On my son's desk...waaaiting for some action in the homework department. 

BTW, this thursday I was at a presentation of this book:


...by the author herself: Ellen Dyrop, at Fretex in Moss. I'd already read her new book, but it was fun to hear her talk about the local places some of the pictures was from. A friend of mine made it there also...in the nick of time. She's been looking for some ideas for her patio & garden, so she got quite excited. Especially about a pallet that was used as a shelf. :D That really made me happyyy! Cause it's cheap fixes. You don't have to pay a fortune, it can look just the way you want it to. Just a lick of paint & voila, instant gratification...or at least for how long it takes the paint to dry. ;) But best of all - it's really green living! 

I've said it before & I'll say it again: I redesign!

Have to crawl back into bed now...
