Update on Red Alert.
If you decide to paint your lamp shades, paint the first coat lightly so the paint doesn't bleed through. Add additional coats, making sure they dry in between each coat. Turn on the lamps each time you paint so you can see how they look with each coat of paint. You will lose the brush strokes after a couple of coats. It took me 3 coats of paint to get the desired look.
Also, the paint is acrylic paint from Walmart...called Barn Red. The fringe is from Hobby Lobby. I just hot glued the fringe to the lamp shades.
I don't mean to alarm you but I've gone on a MAD red paint rampage. I love red and wanted to add some of it to my foyer.
This lamp shade could use some color.
I couldn't remember any decorating shows that painted lamp shades. I wasn't sure I COULD paint lamp shades. Thanks to all you wonderful bloggers out there I gathered enough nerve to paint them. I purchased the trim from (who else) Hobby Lobby.
I've started my Fall projects. I'm taking pictures along the way. My mother-in-law arrives Wednesday so I wanted to have all my Fall stuff out by then. Thank you all for stopping by. I have the sweetest commenter's out there.
Also, I've been tagged by my sister Darlene of Darlene's Days. Well, she's not my real sister but don't tell anyone.
I'm supposed to list 6 unimportant things about me. I really couldn't think of anything so I asked my husband and children to come up with the answers. So, here is goes:
1. (my husband) She doesn't know the difference between fahrenheit and celcius
2. (my daughter) She likes to read magazines in the bathroom.
3. (my middle child) She likes fish.
4. (my youngest) She likes candles.
5. (my husband again) She calls her car Edward.
6. (me) I hate peas.
Now I would like to tag:
