Here are the lamps before.
Here they are now.
I knew when I bought them that I was going to spray paint them but wasn't sure what color. A few weeks ago, I decided on orange. Our house is very colorful so, I thought I'd incorporate a color that I rarely ever use.
I found this orange geometric fabric on fabric.com. It is called P Kaufman indoor/outdoor fabric in Soho Sorbet. It also comes in a blue color.
I bought 2 drum shades from Target and covered them with the fabric. I don't have a tutorial because there is literally dozens of tutorials in blogland. HGTV.com has a really good tutorial.
The spray paint I used is Rust-oleum American Accents Ultra Cover in Gloss Real Orange.
This is a little glimpse into the room that I am now working on which is our living room. I painted the black and white stripe feature wall last year. The carpet is hideous and will be removed here in a few weeks. I am so excited about that. I have been wanting to remove this carpet for 4 years.
I am also working on a project in the hallway. The wall next to the office door (the door with the chalkboard faux molding) is getting some much needed attention.
I better get back to painting outside. I have lots of projects going on right now. I just need more hours in the day to get them all done.
