Ruffled Lamp

No, I'm not crazy.. I usually don't get so much done...
But, Mr. Ruffles is away on business until Sunday morning,
so I thought I'd get some of the smaller "ta-do's" finished.

I bought this lamp awhile back with the intention of
painting it white, of course.
(Jeez, aren't I the repetitive one! LOL)

I did take a before picture.. yay!!

Ok, ok.. not TOTALLY a before picture.. hehehe!
But, you get the idea.

I gave the lamp post a coat of white paint with my paint brush...
yeah... 2nd coat with my paint brush.. no way!
I got out the spray paint to finish this one off. Whew!

For the lamp shade I sewed 5 strips of white fabric and ruffled em up.
Then, hot glued them around the shade.

And, just kept going...

Until it was done!
