Well this is the lamp that my sister Alina no longer wanted, thank you so much! I could not let her go to the garage sale pile, I thought it would be such a waste. I think the older I get the harder it gets for me to throw away perfectly good things. I have become my mom, lol. Why do you suppose that is????
All I did was paint the solid wood vase in a creamy off white and since the black was already the under coat, it made things very easy for me. A little sanding and I was all done. For the lamp shade all I did was play with some of my vintage bridal trims, a few flowers that I already had made and a little jewelry to give it a bit more sparkle and she was perfect. Now she's a shabby keeper.
