You are my sweetest downfall. I loved you first, I loved you first. Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth.

Just your average acrylic paint, and a coat of clear acrylic high gloss sealer.

It's not a real sport unless you can die from massive internal injuries.

You did a great job. Did you paint the lamp shade, or is it paper or fabric?

I've always seen household items on clearance, but they were so ugly I never really bothered looking extensively at them. I did not remember a little bit of work can turn something more pleasant.
