We're having a par-tayy!

This is why I haven't posted all week...


That's right my first week of college. :)  (check out my FREE backpack, I won at orientation!)

I planned on having a fall party today, to celebrate the fact that Arkansas weather is dropping finally & we've even been below the 70s this week. :) That makes me VERY happy. Not only is that a reason for celebration, but also today was my last day at work!! Woo-hoo. I've been working at a bbq restaurant for over a year & i hated it. But now I officially have my CNA license! So before we get this party started I wanted to show yall something I got from my junk store this week.
I had already taped off the only part I actually liked about it before I remember I should take a before pic.
I know it is so ugly! But, I swear it has been looking at me in the Junk Store for weeks. So i finally dished out my 3 little dollars & bought it. & here it is now...

I looove it! The sticker on the back said it was originally $34...umm I'm sorry but there is no way. I think $3 was just fine. I was planning on painting the brown part black, but I liked it just the way it was. When I showed it to Mom she decided she need to keep it hehe.

Now for the lovely lamps :)

Here is my new project for the next few weeks...I'm so excited!

I found this lamp out in our field by a shed it was buried in the ground pretty much (that's where all the real good junk is of course ;) ) So I got it out brought it inside cleaned it up & spray painted the bottom. After months of looking for a shade that fit I finally found one & payed $2 for it. I want  to recover the shade of course. But first I want to see all the lamps you guys have already dolled up!

So add any LAMP you've fixed up your self even if you only added paint. If it's a lamp I want to see it.
Make sure to tell your friends & fellow bloggers. Also I don't have a button yet. So Please just follow my blog to show support & next party I will be sure to have one!

Shelia, I am so sorry it took me this long to reply to you. I used Krylon Bahama Sea. I know Krylon cost a little more but the quality is much better! Don't forget to become a follower!
