A few weeks ago I did a total transformation on my living/dining room, and I am in love with how it turned out! (pictures to come.....still have one big project to complete)
I have never been in love with our light over the dining room table....and I have big plans to replace it in time. Until then, I wanted to add some softness to it with shades. I fell in love with a few at Ballard Designs....but couldn't bring myself to spend $20 per shade!!!!!!
I stopped off at the Goodwill...and found 5 shades for $5 total......despite the AWFUL 80's print...I had a vision!
I spray painted them with primer, and then just a flat white. It covered REALLY well, which kind of surprised me.
I made ruffles......and took out my trusty glue gun to add them to the shades. this was a SUPER easy project!
They just make me smile! I don't even feel the need to rush out and buy a new fixture anymore!
I do believe that for about $10 for all five shades.....this project was a total success!!!!!
I have a few more projects that I will be sharing this week....so be on the lookout!
