The other day, I felt a need to "craft", but did not have any projects waiting, so I decided to change the lamp shade in the TV room.
There was really nothing wrong with it, but I wanted to see what would happen if I decoupaged on the brown suede....
I had some wall paper left over from a previous house, some Modge Podge, (read, Plain old White Glue) some vinyl lettering, and some black trim, so I set to work.I tore off pieces of paper, and glued them on randomly.
The first layer of wall paper looked blah, so I got this one out and did another layer.
Then I remembered that I still had some vinyl lettering stacked away somewhere, and put that on top.
Added some trim with spray-on adhesive, and Voila! A new lamp!
I think I will change out the base for a diffferent one later...a copper base I got at Savers on their dollar day, that I will spray paint. Probably with ORB.
This current base was a project I did a few years back...with Rust Paint from Master Paints...I will tel you about it sometime.
I think it is an improvement...and you? Have you changed the look of some of your lamps lately?
