I bought two of these lamp bases on clearance at Wal-Mart about a month ago. They were cute but didn’t go with my decor.
I had bought 3 of these small lamp shades at a garage sale for about 5 cents a piece about 6 months ago.
Needless to say, they didn’t match each other very well.
First I had to find out where they were going to go. Once I figure that out, all it took was a little paint and some trim to change them up a little.
The first lamp sits on my kitchen counter. I painted it chocolate brown to go with my coffee/chocolate kitchen theme and then I added some really pretty trim to the bottom of the shade and painted the gold trip up top, brown, until I get some brown ribbon or something else.
I think it came out cute. BUT..the second one is my FAVORITE.
Same lamp and shade but this time this lamp was going in my craft room and even though you haven’t seen my whole craft room, yet. I’ll tell you that my love of red and white is dominant. Thus, the reason this lamp is the color it is.
I took my 5 cent lamp shade, added some cute red pom pom trim to the bottom and some red rick rack to the top. I painted the base red and added some white rick rack to the bottom.
Tomorrow is finally my 800th post and you know what that means right?
