Not so frugal moment...Impulse buy....didnt like it a few hours after I bought it...It has been four different colours in the past three days..White, Red, Blue and Mustard (well as close as I could get). I had a doily thing going on with the lampshade at first, I tore them off...Used some wallpaper instead..Im quite pleased with the outcome...I like things that are different from the norm...I am eccentric after all !!! For the mustard base I used some plaster of paris mixed in with water and acrylics to give a chalky appearance .... heehe doily thing!!
