Lamp Love

**Welcome everyone from Sanctuary Arts' make-over open house. :o) I posted this just last week.**

My sister-in-law Shawna asked if I wanted this set of lamps while we were staying with them during our vacation. I wasn't sure at the time what I'd do with them but I gratefully accepted them anyway.
Well it didn't take long to decide that I wanted to put them in our kitchen. So I went to work painting the bases red and covering the shades with fabric. End result:

LOVE them!

Those are super cute. Lovely little shades. It's hard not to think "paint!" when you see them in their original color. You made something wonderful with them :O)

Nichole, I see you got to the shades. Those lamps are really, really cute. If I hadn't just changed my kitchen from yellow & red to yellow & blue I would want them...a lot.

Those are awesome! I love them. I would never have the vision that you have to redecorate things. So cute!

Nichole, I have a box of craft stuff that I am wanting to get rid of. Some of it's good stuff, and I was wondering if you would like it. I can send it to you and you can do whatever you want with it. If you want it, will you email me your address. I had it once, but I've lost it. You are the first person I thought of. I didn't want to just get rid of it.

Very cute! I love the pop of red and the cherry fabric is a cute complement to the color. It looks like a totally different lamp!
