I used my stenciled pillow method from the previous post to make over some lampshades!
I got these 2 lamps for $11 each at Marshalls!! The shades were different colors and said "Sand" and "Sea" on them... cute, but, a little too... beachy for my tastes in our non-beach home. I recovered the lampshades with a painter's tarp and some hot glue, and then used my scallop stencil and some white craft paint to stencil all over the shades! They turned out fantastic, and I love seeing them on either side of the TV!
You will notice that one of the lamps is cracked, but as it was $11 and I'm no stickler for things being absolutely perfect when they are a good deal, I didn't care! I also forgot to move the cord out of the way. Whatevsies! (See The Nester - The Power of the Imperfect)
My end tables are also different heights, a great way to combat that and have the lamps look even? Stack up books to even out the heights! I have books on both tables that raise the lamps up to the same height and I love the way they look. (Especially coupled with my Book Lamp behind the couch!)
Enjoy and thanks for reading!!
