A few weeks ago my grandma went to help her sister clean my great-grandma's house to get ready for our family reunion. My great-grandma and grandpa use to go to auctions all the time. They have collected anything and everything for a very long time. She found numerous lace table cloths that were on their last life so we just added them to lamp shades! We took blah old brass and painted them with some ASCP in old white, coco, country gray and french linen.
We found this lamp at the thrift store. It was painted black but I wanted something more neutral and chic looking. The shade we have had for a while and it was perfect fit for this one. Sometimes it is ok to have a stockpile of things for the future! :)
All of our shades and lights sold in a snap. So we are busy bees working on more.
