New Lamps!

The other day when I was shopping I found some college lamps and shades that they were clearing out of Walmart for Three Bucks!!! I couldn't pass it up. In my excitement I didn't take a before shot. Sorry!

I was going to do a tutorial of how I made them...I decided it was lame...anyone could do it, but because I do have a before of the shade. It is just plain. Nothing exciting, and really it didn't become anything exciting but I love it. I just spray painted the lamp silver and mod-podged some brown fabric onto the shade (I am new to the mod-podging world and I think I used way too much because it took forever to dry!)

I had some fringe, ribbons and all kinds of things that I debated putting on to make them cuter, but I love them  plain and simple.

I love, love, love the way they light up my room!

Stay tuned. I am working on giving these baskets a face-lift so they aren't such an eye sore in my living room.

PS - Some how I misplaced (or Sarah found) my bottle of mod-podge. This could be bad...

:( Man I want a nice bedroom! I keep telling Josh our bedroom should be the nicest room in the house. It's where all the magic happens. :)

I agree Ash- ours is super white trash. Anyway, cool lamps Liz! I've been wanting to try the modge podge thing for a while, how was it? I love the colors of your bedding.
