A Quarter's Worth

What can a quarter buy these days?

How about a nasty old lampshade at the flea market!

What can you do with a can of spray paint you find in the basement?

How about transforming that shade into something lovable!

I got my quarter's worth on this one!

Living it up at Lakewood,

Hi Cindy.
This is great. I have to say i would have never thought to just spray paint the whole thing.
Guess I'll be looking at old shades a bit differently now.

blessings, and thanks for all your visit.
I so appreciate your comments.

Well I am just shocked that you can paint a lampshade! It turned out wonderful, and I'm so happy to know that you can do this, because I have an abundance of really ugly shades!
Have a great day!

Love it! I've done this myself, but I tried a different color, which didn't work out so well. Why don't I ever think of black?

I am so glad that you let me know that you tried this, I have been wondering if it would work and yowzah, you did it!

I have a similar shade that I really don't want to struggle with redoing. YEAH, problem solved.
