Try it Tuesday

Welcome to my first post on "Try it Tuesday"! 

I'm fairly certain that many of you are like me...you have to rely on your significant other to "help" you with some of your projects.  I'll admit, I depend heavily on Dean for the heavy lifting, power tools and wiring.  Because of this, I usually have to wait until he can get to them, and that's usually not acceptable to my sometimes (more often) impatient personality. 

No more whining!  Some of the projects he does for me are so simple, I know I can do them!   He is so good at what he does and I do love watching him at work on my projects....but, he works full-time and the last thing he wants is for me to have a long "honey-do" list waiting for him when he gets home.

So, on this day I tried something new and the results were very self-satisfying.  I WIRED A LAMP!  With just a little oversight from my hubby, I DID IT!!!  Now I know I can do it all by myself from now on - and you can, too! 
 
My project lamp is this really sweet little lamp that I found last week in Tennessee.  Obviously, I have an obsession with lamps!


I just love the details! Little nicks and all.


I originally planned to do a tutorial on this, but since I'm not a certified electrician, or anything close, I don't feel that I'm qualified to do that. :)  There are lots of places on the internet that give you step-by-step instructions. It really is an easy process!
 
 
After all is said and done - I have a new little lamp that will sit proudly on my sewing table. I just used a lampshade that I already had....but I'll be creating something extra special for her in the next few days.
