With the holiday season right around the corner there will be so many little “details” we need to take care of that our opportunity to create gets stifled by time constraints. With your supplies organized and accessible, you’ll be able to take advantage of many more of these opportunities.
If it’s not the right color don’t worry about it. One of the wonderful things I learned from my mother; who always had a beautiful home even though we had very little money, was that a can of spray paint can transform just about anything. Spray the frame whatever color you need it to be. The next time you need it, don’t be afraid to hit it with yet another color. You can change the frame every time you use it. My mother transformed a pair of 1960s chrome bubble lamps into everything from high tech hip to beachy and beige using spray paint and a few other supplies she had in her craft closet. I can remember at least 4 different transformations, each of them cooler than the last. While I don’t have any examples of her actual lamps, this is exactly what she started with:
