Before and After: Salvaged Lamp and Shade

This is what I had to work with...

I stripped the original lampshade and recovered it with burlap (using hot glue) :)...

For the base of the lamp, I had to work a bit longer. I had to take apart the whole lamp to put on a new lamp harp (this holds up the shade). Then I pre-painted the base white.

To finish it, I just spraypainted the base green and added a brown ribbon to the top.


Before and After: Autumn to Winter-Peace

Just thought I would show you a before and after challenge from my mother-in-law. I really DID like the original colors on the peace sculpture, but I wanted something more Christmas-y, so I spraypainted it white and sprinkled some white glitter all over can't really tell, the pics don't do it justice, but it looks cool hanging up instead of sitting on a board with candle holders on it:)
