Frou frou Boudoir Lamp

A boutique owner ask me to make a Frou Frou lamp for her display 
on her street windows
Here is my Boudoir Frou frou Lamp
After many research to find the perfect lamp

 I found this beautiful lamp base at a local second hand store
This was taken last night in my home 
I think i'm in LOVE
 To erase this gold design on the glass was more time consuming 
than I thought...
...Worthwhile don't you think
I forgot into the creation of this beauty, to take a Before photo 
of the shade that was expensive but in mint condition 
to complete the look I was looking for!


The reflection of the feathers on the glass is sweetness...

I used spray cans to do this kind of work 
You have to be in a well ventilated area and always use a mask during the process which I don't always do!!!
I start with a primer on the lamp base, than I apply many coats of glossy white 
and then finish with a few lacquer coats to give a shiny finish.
I let dry in between each step for least a good couple of hours.
The process can be hard for sensitive lungs but you absolutely need a Frou frou lamp Boudoir in your home!!!

Mission Impossible

My First DIY Biggest Chandelier

After having bought and received my chandelier from ebay,

 I did not like the color 

Next thing I did,  I purchase some lacquer spray paint 

in black and started to work


 You can see it better here the color copper ?


 I did the project while our new home 

was in constructions 
 
 It took me 4 cans of spray paint and lots of patience ...


  The hard part came when ready to be hang on top of the staircases

 without braking any one of the crystals from the chandelier ??

My electrician is about 5 foot 6 inches 

and the ladder was border line big enough to reach 

the 20 foot ceiling...

After 3 others persons help the electrician was up in the air

 holding, screwing, installing

standing from one foot and still smiling!Ouf...

   The chandelier was installed after 20 min!!!



 From here you can understand the intensity of my story!


Done, Mission Impossible accomplished!

After looking in my area for chandeliers I was astonish

about their cost...I browse on eBay for days

It is amazing the deals you can find there

 More and more I buy for my customers as well 

buying on line is safe and fast. 
So far I purchase 8 chandeliers for the prize of 
1 in a store ! 
Do you buy on the internet or your'e to scare ?  
Have a fabulous day

Say it with flowers


DIY project front row!

first summer at the house
I needed to do something with the

 all in white entrance area
Starting with some fake flowers purchase 
at one of the local store
Almost done!
 Better with some branch to look similar 
to the one a side...
Closer look of this compositions made 
with natural branch
 I spray painted some white for a recall 

of the white flowers
I  add some green foliage and I love the fact of decorating my branch
 whenever the change of seasons 
Voila...Say it with flowers!
I started the project not knowing exactly what would be the final 
look of the front door
I love this type of project, you can supplement to it 
or change over times...
Aside from the expense of the fake flowers
You can stick with the natural branch for a fractions of the prize 
Have fun and be creative...
What do you think ? Your comments are so much appreciated...
Have a fabulous day!
