About a year ago, I saw a picture on Pinterest, where someone had glued fabric to their nightshade.  I, of course, had to jump on the bandwagon.  The material I bought was black and white, and I took a fuschia sharpie and coloured in some squares.

I love my black and white room, with the pops of pink and fushia all over.  For the longest time, I have been looking for a better light fixture.  The one I have is nice (I found it on the side of the road), but it is a little boring for my tastes.

I really want to put it in my downstairs foyer.  Anyways, I have been searching high and low for a giant drum shade type fixture, with enough character to wow me.  Today, I stopped into Goodwill and found a $6.06 dream shade

It is HUGE and almost the exact same pattern as my shade.  I am in love!!!  Out came the fushia sharpie.

I love how it turned out.  Now, I just need to buy an old chandelier, paint it black, and hang this baby over top of it.  However, that is for another post.  Stay tuned!!
