New to me old LamP!

The Scoop:   So i bought this lamp from a local thrift store a few weeks ago.  I had some plans for this...

1-took off the gold trim on the shade.
2-taped off the wood and primed it white with Kilz primer (can be found at Walmart)

3- measured around the shade 30" so i doubled it to 60". Cut fabric for the ruffle around. I pinned it where i wanted it to fold. ( you can do a gathering stitch but i didnt) hot glued it to the shade.



4- You can see my clear containers of fabric I got those and just pulled all the colors out that matched.  I came up with some flowers and hot glued them together and put it on.
5- then i decided to paint the antique brass turquoise just with acrylic paint that i had
6-I finished the white off with a little distressing and Ta dah!  I love it because its sooo different.
Go Here!! to see my friends lamp that she Re-did. Its darling!
