News Worthy?

Well, I'm not sure if I like it or not.I started it a few weeks ago.It's been sitting around waiting for a shade. I found a new shade at GW for 3.00.

It's not the shade I had in mind, but the price was right. A red checked shade keeps playing out in my mind. When I get something in my mind,well there's just no getting it out! I just drive myself nuts about it!
I added some vintage buttons to the shade thinking it may help. Still not working for me!

This whole thing started with a Columbus Dispatch newspaper! My husband doesn't believe anything unless he reads it in the Dispatch (which has nothing to do with this post). If I mention it looks like rain, he often replies ,"that's not what the Dispatch said"

Well,actually it started with this old lamp and a jar of Mod Podge calling out to me. The Dispatch just happened to be sitting there!
So....I went to work! But just now I came to the realization that I hate this Lamp! I think I'll give it to my son for his apartment.

I like the lamp, not the shade, sorry!
Is the lamp wood?
You said you had a busy weekend planned, do tell!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't you hate it when you work so hard on a project and it doesn't turn out the way you had hoped? I'm sure your son will love it:)

I laughed right out loud when I read that last sentence:) But there has to be a way to salvage the lamp! Don't give up just yet.
