Here's an old 'before and after' fail of mine that you can use to remind yourself that when you think something is pretty, don't try to improve it.
I had these colorful lampshades. I loved these colorful lampshades. Because I'm afraid to go out on a limb and make some color choices, everything else in our house is monotone in shades of brown and beige.
I lost my mind one night in Fall 2013 and started painting the lampshades white. Because, you know, like plain white lampshades are sooooo hard to find!
I thought about just leaving them 'white high-lighted' halfway through. I think it was late and I was already regretting my adventure.
The next morning when I got a glimpse of my masterpieces, I realized I had no choice but to see the act of sabotage all the way through.
So, I got out the chalk paint again and continued on my sad journey towards plain white lampshades, which I could have bought cheaply anywhere lampshades are sold.
Lately, I've been wondering if I could just wash off the white chalk paint? I might give it a try. If it doesn't work, I might paint them black...or maybe a kicky blue color. What do you think? Anything but gray.
Thanks for dropping by!
