It's always good to find cute lamps on garage sales but there's also much enjoyment in updated a tired old object. I had this old cream lamp shade lying around.There's nothing wrong with it but it doesn't really suit our home and I thought it might look interesting in the guest room (going with a yellow theme) and then the blue lamp would look great in the second guest room*.
*Husband and I live in a country town of 15000 app 3 hours from the city so when friends and family come to visit they always stay the night and so we need a few guest rooms.
I had read about spray painting lampshades and thought I'd give it a try
It's looking great though I'm trying to work out whether to spray the inside too. I still need to fix up the base to match but I'm pretty pleased with how to shade looks now. When it's all done I'll share some snaps of our ever evolving main guest room.
Do you think I should do a plain yellow base or striped white and yellow?
