When me and my fiance moved in together we were Oliver Twist poor. But sometimes at night we need to see so we bought a boring lamp. Well the base is kind of neat but the shade is plain white and has bothered me for some time. So finally I got around to decorating it and this is what came of it. Grin

The $#@&% flash ruins my life. I promise its much more polished looking in real life.

It was easy to do. All I did was take pictures of our profiles, cut them out with an exacto, tape them to the inside of the lamp shade, trace the outline, and paint black. It took me maybe 20 minutes total. Only thing was I had to put like four coats of paint. light shone through the weave of the shade.

And just for the curious and because I like to show off, the man of the hour Keith. Wink

(He despises his picture taken)

Look! A common housewife! What's for dinner?

You turned a boring lamp into something that has meaning for both of you. What an excellent idea. And don't worry about the picture. It turned out fine. The flash in my camera gives me grief too Smiley
