Hi! I just wanted to stop in & say hi & let you all know I am feeling MUCH better today! I'm still not 100% but I feel a ton better. Thanks for the well wishes! I wanted to show you a lamp makeover I finished today. I got this lamp at the Goodwill for $6.99 this weekend & boy was it U- G- L- Y!! So last night I decided to spray paint it flat black (I was feeling better by then & thought I could be trusted with the spray paint! lol). My son didn't understand why I wanted to paint it - He said "It's cool mom -It's GOLD!" Like that was the best color EVER! lol Of course this comes from the kid who wanted the dentist to give him a gold tooth when he got a filling last month! LOL Anyways -Next I needed to do something with the ugly shade it came with...So I very gently upeeled the accordian pleat shade that was glued to the base of the lamp shade. Once that was off I drew a pattern onto some wrapping paper and cut out some fabric I had leftover from my curtains I had made in my living room. I then used some spray glue & attached the fabric to the shade base. Here's the before/after pics - I think it looks so much better now!
Well I hope everyone has a great day -it's a cold rainy one here in Ohio! blah!
