Do you remember when this shade of country blue was popular? along with all the hearts and geese? Well, I ran across these two little lamps at Goodwill and loved the classic "ginger jar" shape and knew that I had the perfect lampshades at home to go with them. They just needed a quick coat of cream spraypaint (or ivory silk to be exact)
I used a little of this to prime them first to make sure the paint would adhere to the slick glass surface. You can get it at Lowe's for around $4.
Then painted them with this
then I added a pair of lampshades that I'd been saving for the perfect pair of lamps. Here's one of them but they look identical. Pardon the plastic that's still on the shades I'm taking these down to my booth and wanted to leave the plastic on to protect them.
and a random side note, my latest little Goodwill find....
I've said it a million times (and I'm sure I'll say it again) but it's always amazing what a little coat of spraypaint will do!
