Some Quick, Easy-Peasy Lamp Shades

I took a break from my big bookshelf project and did a few simple, easy, and fast crafts with some lamp shades.

I ran into my local Goodwill store the other day and found a cute lamp stand for $3....(forgot to take a before pic)

SCORE!

At Target, I found a lamp shade covered in burlap for $6.

SCORE!

Brought both home, spray painted the lamp stand in my favorite ORB spray paint, hot glued some trim around the top and bottom, and stencilled a cute design onto the shade with craft paint.

 Bought another lamp base at Goodwill for $2, spray painted it pink to match....

Lastly, and the most simple of my lamp shades is this one...

This lamp was recently spray painted in ORB with just a plain cream colored shade....

....but I thought it needed something more.....


So I simply tied a ribbon around the shade to add a little "umph" to it...

Good to meet you today at Chick-fil-A. I just scanned your blog. How neat. You have some great ideas and obviously a lot of energy to actually get them done.
