Black & White Lamp Redo

Hello everyone long time no see! I've been away for quite some time now. 
I'm happy to be back!
I wanted to share this quick simple project with you. I began with this lamp. I found it at an antique mall....dirt cheap. If I remember correctly $5. I love lamps so, could I pass it up....no!
The only downfall was this poor shade. Let's just say it wasn't very clean or pretty to look at.


My solution....spray paint and use fabric to cover the shade. I found this fabric on clearance at JoAnn Fabrics. It was rather stretchy, which I wasn't so sure about. I glued and stretched until it covered the entire shade.

I really like the end result. A major update for little $$$.
