Today’s What Would You Do? is a little bit more personal than most. You guys are like legit my favorite people in the world and I want to know what you would do to some projects I am working on!!
Up first is the Industrial Work Lamp that I posted about yesterday. Since our eyes first met I have been on the fence about leaving it vs. changing it. While the brown isn't what I would necessarily choose I LOVE the character in it. In the pics it may look like chippy paint but it actually is a few spots where it was filed down, like it was on someone’s work bench and they used it to dull a file a little before they went to work. It makes me happy to look up and see it. So what would you do? Paint it? Leaf it? Leave it? I looked it up online to find out the value (its a Dazor Floating Fixture #602) and while they are going for $60-$100 I think its in fairly poor shape (because of the filing) and wouldn't be worth much. So I am not opposed to busting out the spray paint.
I am doing a really fun segment on Studio 5 that will air on March 1st (mark your calendars!) called What Would Mandi Do? As you can tell by the title I am handing out decorating advice like its candy. One lucky viewer is actually getting an update. Check out this fireplace that Sierra shared with us:
It has an AMZING story behind it (that you will have to wait until the segment airs to hear about) but I am headed over today to work on it and make it super Mandilicious. I have a $100 budget (so keep that in mind!) What would you do to it?
Weigh in below, I love hearing your ideas!!
