The Upstairs Attic Bedroom At The Mountain Cottage

We were up at the mountain cottage this weekend and the weather was a bit warmer. 
It's so nice to not have to walk around the house all bundled up just to stay warm!
We currently have a gas fireplace, but can't wait to change it out for an efficient wood burning stove, but that won't be for some time.
Mr. DIY was busy working on the kitchen reno, patching walls and changing out electrical outlets for shiny new Decora ones. Next time we'll prime the walls, then paint. After that we'll he'll be installing the cabinets. We're not sure when that will be because we need to spend some time at our house getting it ready for sale. 


Meanwhile, I wanted to share a few changes to the upstairs bedroom at the mountain cottage that make it feel  a little more cozy.

The Short Version

I've been hiding something and have been wanting to share something with y'all.
It's pretty personal and not related to DIY or our house, or the mountain cottage, but I hope you'll read this post all the way to the end anyway.
I feel compelled to share this with you in hopes that it could save you or a loved one tremendous pain and suffering.

Dining Room Lamp Makeover

I've always loved the pineapple lamps in our dining room. They look a little like artichokes, except for the leaves on top. 
I painted the lamps a few years ago, but I wasn't really thrilled with the finish.
