Lamp Shade Obsession

I readily admit to having a lamp shade obsession!  I can’t help it, the shade to me is the ultimate accessory that either makes or breaks the lamp,  which is what led me to breaking open a can of paint and giving these boring shades a facelift…

Not that there was anything wrong with the parchment shades, they just lacked pizazz.  Anyway, I had obtained a sample size of Sherwin Williams’ Relentless Olive to see if I liked it for painting my den and how could I let the fabulous paint go to waste!

in process…

At some point along the way I decided that the inside needed to be gold…

When I had the color just right all it needed was a little trim…

I even finished off the interior with a jaunty bit of red and a beeswax wrap…

And voila!  From drab to fab…

Does the heat of summer have you indoors tackling any projects…

      I unrolled a beeswax candle that I had and measured off the height and circumference. It cut pretty easily with a kitchen knife and then I just pressed it enough to get it to stick. Easy easy!
