I bought Lampshades too:)

 So far I have seen Debbie at DebbieDoos  and Kathy at Creative Home Expressions posted about their walmart - document style lampshades.
I got 3 a couple weeks ago and 4 more this week. I always buy a few more than I need because every time I get something  at least one of my gal pals wants one too..  Hot little sellers, they are:)  Mine was $9.95   .. Kathy got her's cheaper.
So far I think I'm the only one who's gotten the drum style..
Lovin' the change~!
heres a before and after together...
the shade was covering the top half of the lamp- what was I thinkin':) hmmmm

I also took an old lamp and wrapped some twine on it for a new look.  I had put scrap book paper on sections of it last year and topped it with a shade that was too big..  oh well, its fixed now...

If ya'll want any of these lampshades ya better get out there and grab them. They are going fast~!

Have a great weekend.. I'm painting my dining chairs and bottom of the table.
Love and Hugs and All Good Things


  1. Haha! You weren't kidding, Sonny! I was looking for that other shape, but figured I better just take what I can get. I'll have to look again next time I go. You're right, it's always good to pick up an extra for a friend ~ or another lamp in your own house! : )

  2. I love these lampshades...and I'm seeing them everywhere! it is sooooo on my list of things to purchase the very near future! lol

    it's nice to meet and follow you. if you stop by you'll have a chance to enter my giveaway!

    Xoxoo, A

    Oh, P.S. - I just posted the first room of the tour of our house, I hope you'll stop by to check out the Sunroom and the decoration. I think you'll like it! :)

    Oh, and I miss you! Did you get my email the other day with my #?

  5. THANK oyu for telling us that they are at Walmart!!! I will get there fast! Yours looks great! XO, Pinky

  6. These look great! I rarely go to Walmart, as we have a Target so close, but I will...I have a couple of lamps that could use these shades!! ;-D


  7. I just saw those on Kathy's blog. Walmart, who knew? Your previous post with the painted chairs was so cool. I saw that done with ASCP and thought "Whaaa?"

  8. Fabulous!! I love those lamps and using the twine is genius. I can't believe those lampshades are from Walmart. I was there, just yesterday but never went into the lamp isle. I've got to make a return so I'm, for sure, going to check them out.

  9. HI Sonny! I bought mine from Walmart too about a month ago and the rooster lamp it's on at Dollar General for $2.50! Just goes to show you don't need alot of cash to put together something for your home!

  10. Your lamp make over is beautiful. I hope I can get to Wal Mart before they are gone now that the word is out. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, Wanda@No Place Like Home

  11. Thanks for the tip. I will pop by WalMart and pick one up. I have the perfect spot for it! xo Diana

  12. Sooo adorable. Thanks for sharing on where to get them! LOVE that look!

    Happy PS!

  13. Simply wonderful! Such a great difference. Thank you for the visit and the sweet comment @TheDedicatedHouse. It means the world. Hope you have a grand day! Toodles, Kathryn

  14. I one question for you Sonny and all your decorating friends and that is "Where do you store all this extra stuff between style changes?"

  15. I bought the drum shade and 3 bells; one for me and two for daughter. I LOVE them....
    Now, excuse me ...I have a couple things to do...go to Dollar General for a rooster lamp and wrap a lamp with twine...:)))

  16. Hi Sonny! Gorgeous! You're so smart and I like the twine on the lamp base too! I'll have to go and see if I can find these shades too!
    Thanks for your sweet comments to me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  17. You girls know what's hot! These text printed fabrics are to die for. andrea@townandprairie

  18. I do not like going to Walmart, but after seeing this, I guess I'll be racing out to see of ours has any of them. Love them! laurie

  19. Hey! I missed those shades at Walmart they are fantastic, PB better watch out. I think the twine looks amazing with the shade. Thanks for visiting.

  20. Hi Sonny,
    Late to the party but just wanted to let you know that my friend was able to get me 2 of the shades from WalMart! Once the holidays are over I will change out the burgundy shades on the buffet with these for a much lighter, less heavy feel! Thanks for the heads up :)
