    Spring has brought with it an insatiable need to refresh. I’ve kicked it into high gear — rearranging, discarding, and filling in where needed.

A run to the store and 20 minutes later, I had a brand new lamp and a sigh of relief — my home was one step closer to the refresh I needed.

    If you’re in need of a new lamp, this DIY is a great idea for you too. I’m sure you have an old bottle on hand that could be made useful. So here you go, here’s how!

Learning to live without sandwiches or toast is something that takes some getting used to.
