About a month ago I posted about these trophy style lamps I bought, and I’m pleased to say, my DIY transformation is complete!
I took off the old accordion shade, leaving behind the frame and the inside of the the shade, then I gave the shade new life and shape with this gray fabric I picked up from a local thrift store. The lamp base was sprayed with white glossy Krylon. I am really enjoying the look and feel of these lamps. They are providing a much brighter light than the previous living room lamps, which though very nice, have now been relegated to the bedroom.
And now for the inferior before picture.
Millie will be happy to see that I’ve finally settled on two new fabrics for my next living room decorating projects. The first one will be for the ottoman/coffee table, and the second for the sofa pillows.
I have really been drawn into decorating lately, and thrifting and garage sale hunting for the home.
A final note to Canadian eyeglasses wearers, Clearly Contacts is giving away 10,000 pairs of free glasses tomorrow. You’re welcome! (I got mine two weeks ago when they had the same promo).
