I can’t believe it’s been years since I found this beauty. You may remember it from this post. Since then I have been trying to find a decent shade for it. Luckily, I found this one at the thrift store for $1. I thought I would try it out, since it is a common type/color available on most lamps. To make sure my office coordinated, I found a matching shade for the other brass table lamp in my office. And it definitely adds some character alongside my grandmother’s typewriter.
Ah, so you know when you just nudge your perfectly symmetrical succulent with a little force and POOF no longer the perfect specimen that lives in every homemakeover show/magazine/blog post.
Well it turns out most of these “arms” broke off perfectly! I had no idea my succulents could get any more adorable. (Can you tell I love them? Haha) I’ve been keeping them next to the window on moist soil that I spray at least once a week (depending on how dry the air is). It’s certainly takes a while (months) but this is what a few of them look like now:

I looked into some options, like contact paper or temporary wall paper, but ultimately I wanted to make it a “gallery space”. My plan is to find more of the same size frames (of course from thifting) and fill them with vibrant artwork. This is what I have so far:
And an update from my last post. I added the leather hanger & painted over the name on the mailbox.
Not too shabby.
