Lately, of course, I have lady bugs on the brain as I thrift shop. So when I saw this lamp I knew it could be something quick, easy and cute! I got this $3 lamp base on the 1/2 off shelf and then I bought a $3 shade at Big Lots....
I spray painted the lamp base black and painted the shade barn red.
I thought it would be cute to put lady bug spots on the shade but I wasn't exactly sure how I'd get nice circles on it. So after so brainstorming I discovered the best method was to dip a shot glass into black paint and "stamp" circles onto the shade.
And then I filled in the circles with a small, round sponge brush.
