A Few Treasures!

I found a few treasures this weekend at an estate sale. I didn't have a whole lot of time to visit different garage sales, but I did hit up a few and here's what I found. I bought two of these lamps for $10 a piece. The coolest thing about them is that they are touch sensitive lamps. I'm planning on spray painting the base of the lamps white and I'd like to cover a circular lamp shade in Chevron fabric. Not sure what color of fabric yet. Here's kind of what I was thinking.


I want the same exact shape of this lamp shade and I want the Chevron fabric, but in a different color. I'm not positive yet if I'll paint the bottom white, or if I'll get brave and paint it a fun color. I'd like to paint it white and find a grey and white Chevron fabric.
I also bought two of these shutters for $2 a piece. I have a shutter hanging in my kitchen as a bulletin board and my best friend said she would like to make one for her house. I gave her one of the shutters and I'll probably use the other one to make a bulletin board as a gift for someone....not sure who yet!

Here's a picture of my shutter bulletin board that's in my kitchen. It's pretty cluttered, but I like it that way because I like to display and keep all of my invitations and cards that I receive.

Hopefully I'll have the lamps done soon so I can show you how they turn out!
