light reflections {day 18}

i love seeing light reflections on random things. it’s beautiful to think that light coming from someplace else, is reflected on an object that can’t -by-itself- make light. it makes me think about how WE are called to be lights to the world. and yet, WE ourselves can’t conjure up the light ourselves. we can only reflect.

day 18

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”

Psalm 119:105

our light reflections have to come from God and His word. can i get an amen?!

along with this post i wanted to show you how i personalized these lamps for our new house. we started out with a couple of *free* {yay!} lamps that were given to us from the church yard sale. we are still in desparate need of lighting around our place so it was awesome to score a couple of free ones!

lamps original

as you can see they needed some love. the brass had discolored unevenly and had turned rather ugly…  lamps1

so i got out the spray paint. first i used a primer for metal. i almost hesitated here because i fell in love with the white! but i was on a mission for a bright color. i can always spray them white some day when i get sick of the blue.lamps2note to self: spray paint on a level surface…not on the grass! doh. took a few tries to get the bottom cleaned up.

but i think they turned out nicely, don’t you? lamps4

and they go with our blue chevron rug. it’s nice to bring in the color since we don’t really have the time or resources to paint the room right now! Husbuddy thinks the shades could use a little decoration. right now i’m loving them just plain white. we could always add a ribbon or something in the future. what do you think?lamps3

    I am enjoying your creativity. I’m always looking for ways I can be creative around our house…seeing your ideas is inspiring. Did you decoupage the table that has the tray on it? Looks great!
