revamp . . .

Sometimes a quick coat of paint can give new life to even the homeliest of home goods :-)

I saved this fantastic lamp from a co-workers trunk right before it was to meet it's demise.

I had some leftover grey paint that has zero VOC,  so it's environmentally friendly and has really low fumes.

I gave it a good coat.

Then I hung out with this giant poodle as the paint dried.

After searching for a new lamp shade, I realized they are ridiculously expensive so I just sprayed the old one white,

and let it thoroughly dry.

I cut some strips of cute paper . . .

they can be taped right on to the lamp . . .

a splash of color can really change it up.

It's a really easy fix.

How cute! You are always thinking outside the box. Love the tqs. band that it ended up with.
