Hey Friends!

Did you happen to notice the sconces in the last post about these guest bedroom bed nooks?

Lighting, of course, is a crucial element in every design and I knew I needed to add some fixtures to this space that doesn’t receive a lot of natural light. I considered pendants, but decided on swing arm sconces because they fit with the feel of the old door headboard more.

I didn’t want to choose anything too fancy because there were already so many great focal points in this space, not to mention the budget was running pretty low. ┬áSo I found these simple, yet adequate fixtures at my local home depot and decided to spice them up just a tiny bit.

I love using paper in all sorts of ways to create an interesting look on a low budget. I use these tricks a lot when I want to add lots of layers and texture to TV sets, but I’ve found that these simple solutions also work great in the real world! For these lampshades, I simply cut a strip of paper, glued the ends together (to create a circle), and slid this paper “sleeve” over the original lampshade!

An instant upgrade for pennies!! I love this idea because anyone can do it and there are soooooo many great papers out there- you can certainly find one that fits your style and personality!

‘Til tomorrow y’all!
