Plain to Pretty in 5 Minutes

Sometimes the simplest solution is the best.  I mentioned I was changing the color scheme in my sewing room in a previous post.  Getting rid of all the red just felt right.  This white lamp had a very serviceable lampshade but it was definitely red.  I thought of all kinds of fixes for that shade.  Fabric paint, wrapping with burlap, etc, etc, but none of then seemed feasible.  Sometimes you just have to give up, so to Walmart I went. Well actually I started at Pottery Barn but the prices were outrageous!  Hence the trip to Walmart.
I found this cute pink shade for about $7 and these little flowers for about $10 for the three packages.

 A little hot glue and I have a beautiful shade for less than 1/2 the cost of ones I had been looking at.

Anybody need a red shade?
