Lamp shade makeover

This weekend was a quiet one. LB and I decided to drop by Salvos to see what goodies I could find to create a weekend craft project.

I came across a pair of oldschool lamps sitting by the window. With granny blue fur style shades, and dirty cream white paint, they sure needed a makeover! I got to work with some sandpaper and gave them a good sand back. Then stopped by Bunnings to collect a small tin of white paint. I gave them a fresh coat, then headed out on date night with LB. Mmmm, cocktails! (pic below!)

Sunday morning I gave the lamps a second coat of paint, then dropped by Spotlight to choose some fabric! Ohhhh! There were so many designs I fell in love with!! I cannot wait to get a sewing machine and start getting really creative. But for now - armed with a trusty hot glue gun - I finished my mini weekend project. And the result?? I'll let you decide!

Well that was a weekend well spent!
It's thirsty work DIY'ing!
Mmmm...Parisio Bliss!
