Table Lamp Before and After...

I bought this table lamp at Home Goods only because I liked the base... the shade...not so much

I really liked the all the detail but the color....not so much

The finial...round and ho-hum... not so much

So using what I had in my stash... I took her from this...

To this

Chantilly Lace paint and some spot sanding

A rose finial

A curtain tieback tassel

A linen-like shade embellished with stamped muslin squares (143 = I Love You) which I haven't as yet attached permanently because I'm not so sure...

What do you all think.... plain or fancied?

I like it both ways. Couldn't you put them on and then just turn it around when you wanted to change it up abit? I think that is what I would do. The chantilly lace paint you speak about...where do you purchase it and what is the brand?

Thanks so much!

You are so clever Diane! I love the paint treatment, and think the numbers look terrific. You could always leave them semi-attached in case you want to change the shade on a whim.
