Lamp Revamp

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. I did, it would be nice if it lasted another week!

This lamp I've had for a couple of years now so it was time for a change.

I decided to spray paint the base a basic black.

And used black and white fabric for the shade.

Using spray adhesive, I adhered the fabric to the shade and finished the edges with a simple black ribbon.

Black and white, always a classic!
