A Scene From Last Weekend
Jorden (my brother): Enters family room, curiously eyes the wall.
Lindsey: With excitement. Look what I made a few days ago! Doesn’t it add so much texture to the room?
Jorden: Uh, I guess. What is it?
Lindsey: It’s a wreath made out of book pages!
Jorden: Examines the project more closely. What book did you tear up?
Lindsey: Emotional Intelligence. It was just in a box in the basement. I didn’t think we would miss it too much.
The Next Morning
Jorden: Wakes up from sleeping on the couch, joins us for breakfast. With sarcasm. I woke up this morning and something was different. I just felt happier. Then I realized that my state of mind was due to the texture in the room!
Lindsey: Rolls eyes. Ha ha, very funny Jo.
Jorden: Continues to make wise cracks about the addition of texture throughout the weekend.
Though I may be made fun of, I am certainly enjoying the addition of texture in the room.
I also wanted to add a little pop to my plain white lamp shades.
They looked like this for the last year or so (this was the only picture I could find). The ribbons were fun and added some color, but I got sick of the “cutesy” look and wanted something a little more sophisticated.
So, I took the ribbons off and lined the shades with burlap. Here is a close up of, you guessed it, more texture.
