Fakin' it..."Old School"

So this is kind of a silly little post...
We were looking for a new light fixture for the stairway leading downstairs into the basement...which basically is "off limits" to anyone but's "that" bad.  It's where laundry "hides" and future projects "wait" :)
So I decided to have fun with it...and instead of looking at the "same old" indoor ceiling lights, I headed straight to the outdoor lights...

...and found these.  Yes, it's, I didn't realized that when I bought it.  But by that time the idea was already brewing so I ignored that little detail and went to work.

 Stencils, tape...

...paint pen.

And there you have it...UP... case anyone would get confused :)
Reminds me of an old school or factory light....well, sort of.  Like I said, silly.

Liking up at...

Now I guess I'd better get back to "work"...the clock it ticking on my "kid free" project weekend.  What are you up to this weekend?

Chat soon,


  1. I think that's cute..clever idea.

  2. If your friends are anything like mine, someone's going to turn that around at a party just to confuse people. It is a cute idea though!

  3. Now that is really fun and creative, Laurel! I love it!

  4. That is very fun~! You are a creative lady ;-)
