Project Disaster

I found this ugly lamp for $6 and saw some potential.  Once I got the living room put together I really started to see what I wanted the lamp to be.  Croix and I worked on it.

He's such a good helper.

I left it on the back patio to dry.  It was up on the table and i put it on the ground so that the kids wouln't knock it off and break it.  Then Brent was watering the lawn.  I put Maizy and Croix out there while I cleaned up the kitchen from dinner.  Brent thought Maizy needed to be in the bouncer rather then just crawling around.  I tried to tell him she was fine.  He insisted and went and got the bouncer.  He knocked my lamp over and it broke!!!!

He thought it was hideous from the moment it entered the house, he never saw it's potential.  It could be a Christmas Story kind of accident, although he swears it was entirely accidental.  And I think he felt a little guilty because he started helping clean up that night with out my asking.  I'm bummed.  Guess I'll have to start looking for another cheap lamp I can redo!
