I’ve been looking for a set of lamps with a cool shape to put on my buffet console in my dining room. Problem is they are a billion dollars for anything that I like. Seriously? I’m not paying $200 for lamps. Period.
Well, a couple of weeks ago I found myself in the houseware section of Good Will looking for my next
victim project. These puppies were $6.99 a pop.
I love the burlap texture of the lamp shades. Lucky for me it was student discount Tuesday! I scooped up both of them for $10 total. That’s my kind of price tag people. I’m not a total cheapskate; I just feel like a sucker paying top dollar for something that I can make for a fraction of the cost.
These things obviously needed an update, so I hit them with a little spray paint primer first.
I followed that with 2 very thin coats of spray paint in “Heirloom White”.
These sat in our garage for weeks. They didn’t look finished. Hmmm…
*taps foot impatiently*
Until yesterday 😀
For those of you that follow me on Twitter (if you don’t, you can by clicking the cute little bird in my side bar —-> ) then you already know that I am completely out of control with these fabric flowers. Like the past three days, that’s all I’ve been doing. Cray-Zay.
I whipped up 8 fabric beauties, and pulled out the hot glue. (Rocco was chasing the fabric snippings that were blowing in the wind!)
I popped on the flowers one by one…
I arranged the rest of them on the shade.
2 Large and in charge lamps that match my dining room for ten beans. Sweet.
