Last Summer I bought these cute little lamps at a garage sale for about $1.50 each:
I really liked the textures on the lamp, but wasn't very crazy about the Brass, so almost a year later, I decided to do some spray painting!
So, I totally blew it with the pictures. I only took a few of the before pictures! Here is where I measured how much burlap to put on the shade. I rolled the shade along the burlap and drew a line with a pen. It was actually really easy! I made sure to leave some extra on the top and bottom so I had room to glue.
I used spray adhesive to adhere the burlap on the shade. Then, I used my glue gun to glue the ends over as seen in this picture.
The, I decided to make a "W" stencil with my Cricut using vinyl. I used a stencil brush to apply the black paint.
Here is one of the finished lamps. Wahoo!! I really love the way it turned out! I spray painted the lamp heirloom white (my favorite color!).
How do you like the way they look? I was really surprised at how quickly I got them done. It took me about 2 hours total, including drying time for the lamps.
