I was going to attack the challenge of making a teapot lamp, but then I decided I probably would make it and be like...where in the heck am I going to put this. I thought Ok I am going to do the stuff that I definitely want in my house and know where I would put it. So the little tea pot that I had bought for it I decided that I wanted to try something with it. I decided that in my Living Room I have my yellow end tables, then I am finishing a hutch that I want to do a cream color, or bring my hutch in that I already refinished 2 years ago in black in that room. So if I do have those colors I want to pull in the yellow. Why not put some little pieces of decor in the hutch with the colors to tie into the yellow. Hence the pot. I took the pot (I didn't get a before shot) and decided what I wanted to do. It was a hideous Christmas pot. With little gold sparkly stars on the top part of it. My daughter loved it, me not so much.
