Good morning Tea friends. Today I'm going to show you a painting project. When I'm painting it is best to leave the coffee for another time and drink water instead.
I tried something new to me, painting a lampshade. I got the inspiration from the book "Creating a Colorful Home" that I reviewed earlier. I used her techniques but not her stencils or actual design.
Here is where I started. Lampshade from a thrift store and a variety of paints. Following is the finished shade shown in 4 parts so you can see all sides.
Here you see the finished shade on a thrifted lamp base. They didn't come together and I'm not sure I will end up using this base. It seems a little small. If I do use it, or if I find another one, I plan to paint it. Probably yellow. What do you think?
Now it is time to take your drink and hop on over to Elizabeth's blog to see what the Tuesday Tea Party has in store for you.
P.S. I will be away from the computer by Tuesday so I'm hoping Elizabeth can link me up. I'll be around to visit everyone as soon as I'm able to.
