Check it Out! I am a huge fan of transforming things. I get an amazing satisfaction from taking something old, worn out or unloved and making it into something new, lovely and functional.
The picture above is what these shades looked like before. After considering recovering them, I decided to experiment with painting them. I discovered that not only did it work well, it looked good!
This is what they look like after painting. For the ones above I painted the centers an off white color and the upper and lower trims black.
I used acrylic paints and it did take a couple of coats to get full coverage. I am not a master painter so some of the lines may not be super straight but that is where painters tape comes in!
Since she only needed four for the party, I got to keep the other two. Whoot! I decided to paint one of them completely black and the other one... well let's just say, you may see it in another Transformation Tuesday post later!
