2 hours, 200 filters, and 3 burns later I have this HUGE frilly fabulous lampshade. I asked my husband if he liked it, and his response was 'not really.' I think he thought I bought it and that point I didn't care to clear the air and tell him that I just spent 2 hours on this thing!! The funny thing is is that he never would have noticed. Men.
What really matters is that I like it, and I do. It is kind of huge though.
As for gaining the motivation to do 'his lamp' I'm not there yet. That was a bugger! (He'd probably notice then. He'd be like, 'what's all this stuff all over my lamp?') I'm laughing just thinking about it.
I got the approval of my step daughter though. She thought it was 'cool' and for that I am happy.
