thrifty lamps {the after)

Do you remember this set of lamps that I picked up for $1 each? (the yellow ones on the right)

They have finally been painted.

A little primer, a few coats of glossy white spray paint, and a spray clear coat - just what I wanted.

I am STILL trying to find the perfect drum shades. So far the ones I have purchased and tried are not big enough. I'm still looking though. I can't get the harps off, so that has been the biggest problem. I think I may enlist the help of the Mr. on the harps. I'll let you know when I find the right shades.
