A bit more progress. With a week off coming up I should be able to get the bulk of the "can't live without" bits done. Then I can begin using the space while adding on slowly over time.









I'm really liking the way the wet sand floor reflects lights!

Made up a couple of "torches" with a pretty bad-ass LED bulb and a dollar store cup. I think the end result looks a lot more like a real flame than other set-ups.

I used the smaller one from
http://www.flamebulb.com . They are not cheap, but the effect is top notch. I already fooled some people in to believing it was a real torch. Helps to paint some soot at the top of the "glass".

There's too much flammable stuff in this room for me to want a naked flame.

Great stuff so far. Did you say where you got the fabric for the stool covers from?

Good to know about these, but yes, they are expensive

I absolutely LOVE the look of those flame bulbs in your homemade torch lamps!

Checking out Flame Bulb's web site, I see there are two sizes of bulbs available: large and small. Against my better judgement, much to the dismay of my bank account, I'm thinking of using one of these bulbs in an upcoming decorating project of mine - as you said, the effect is top notch! Which size did YOU use (large or small) in your torch lamps?

My wife found the fabric online, but cannot remember where. She'll continue to look.
