UFO DIY Challenge Complete


I decided to participate in a UFO DIY Challenge link party from Confessions of an ADD Housewife. My UFO was this not so attractive old lamp but it was the perfect candidate for a makeover:

Before
My inspiration was this colorful clock I bought at a thrift store:
My goal was to have it done by this weekend. And here is the masterpiece, ta da:

After
I was super-duper excited with the end result! Almost identical to the clock if I do say so myself:
So where could I possibly display this beauty? Well, it has found a home at my new work place:
Pedicure Throne!

I started a new chapter in my life...I have taken a new journey towards my nail career. I'm on my own in a small salon and finally getting around to what I've been working towards to. I'll end my post with this inspirational quote that inspired me to take this new venture:

"Leadership is the ability to transform a vision into reality."
