A new set of diy lamps

Hello bloggy friends I have been gone for a long time! I really needed a blog break, I have been so busy doing all sorts of stuff like canning and freezing and playing and cleaning and canning and prepping for school and well just life in general. I have lot's of projects to share over the next few days though even some paper crafts, however for today I wanted to share some pictures of a lamp redo I did a few weeks ago. The lamps I bought for a buck a piece at a yard sale and the shades were $5.00 at dollar general. They were just not my style so I took some antique white spray paint a some sand paper to them. I also bought some lovely linen material and recovered the shades using spray adhesive and some sort of piching and pleating technique which I am sure I could probably never recreate if I tried. So I was pretty happy with my matching lamps for about a total of $15.00- not to shabby! Oh and a very happy 35th b-day to my very handsome wonderful husband!

I linked up my lamp redo at the CSI Project this week!
