I may have just crossed the line to crazy town.
Honestly, I don't know.
You decide for yourself.
This empty animal crackers bear was staring me down.
I felt like maybe it was destined for a better life, so I bought a lamp kit at Lowe's.
Then my dreams were almost shattered when I made a dumb move.
But one's destiny is rarely fulfilled without hitting some bumps in the road. The honorable gold duct tape to the rescue.
And also my hub came to the rescue. He took the the top down to the garage and used a drill bit that makes circle thingies in stuff. It wasn't perfect though because I had cracked the lid already but it worked well enough.
While he was doing that I assembled the lamp kit. The instructions are on the back, and they're fairly easy to follow.
It wasn't a perfect fit but it worked.
Then I cleaned the bear up with soapy water, dried him off, and took him outside. I started with a coat of white made for plastic spray paint.
Then I followed it up with gold.
Then I made him a lamp shade. For some reason I've got gold and American flags on the brain right now?
And now this bear that once lived in my pantry, and lost his friends to my snacking children, happily lives on the counter in my kitchen mail center.
He's a little weird and wonky. I think that's why I love him.
What do you think, am I certifiable? Crazy town is a cool place to live. Come on over and join me!
