So I wanted to see if I could do something fun with these lamps. I wanted to add something grey on the shade.
I added some dark grey yarn and grey & white yarn
But it started to feel a little masculine, and something you'd add into a little boys room. I didn't like it. So I took all the yarn off.
The dark grey yarn seemed too dark, so I decided to only use the grey and white yarn. I started to put it on more of an overlapping zigzag pattern
And this is how it looked from far away. I thought it looked kind of cool, but I wasn't sure of it.
So I lived with it for a few days...I liked the way it looked from far away. You couldn't tell it was yarn, but up close, it just looked like yarn on a lamp shade. Which wasn't the look I was going for.
So I took off the yarn.
I want to share with you when things go right and wrong.
Because that is TOTALLY part of decorating.
And stuff totally goes wrong, and doesn't turn out like how you thought, and you waste a little money on a creative idea that didn't pay out. No matter what, if it doesn't work, be honest with yourself and just fix it, don't be married to a bad decision.
The good news is I've taken so many more risks that have worked out, so I keep on keepin' on!
Be brave, take risks, even when it doesn't always work out.
