Wanna see something kind of funny and brilliant??
I had a problem to solve regarding some new lights in the hall: the jaggedy drywall that wasn't covered by the base. I thought about patching the drywall somehow or adding a thin wooden circle and painting it white to blend in with the ceiling. Then my mom casually said something like: "you know a margarine lid would almost do the trick". Well, margarine is gross, so at first I just gagged a little, then I grabbed a honey pail lid and some antique bronze spray paint I already had and gave it a try. I myself am amazed at the results!
(so now I'm going to call HGTV and we're gonna have a little chat - it's just that brilliant!)
