Had to change these shades to something more 'me.' I had all the materials on hand so this project came together quickly. The lamps were only $12 ea., including shades, which I think is a pretty great price. I forgot to take a before shot...OK, I'll be honest and say that I didn't forget it was more that I felt the intense NEED to get it done ASAP. These lamps had maroon silk and dangling orange-ish beads. Now they make me happy.
