Cute Little Lamps Redone

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.

  2. That turned out really cute! Does the burlap make the light dim or is it still pretty bright?
