Yeah, I know a paint chip lampshade has been done before, but I haven't seen one quite like this and I am LOVING it!
I created this project for the Lamps.com Blogger Challenge
They sent me a lampshade and told me to have fun...how fun!
And guess what? If my lampshade wins, I get to give away a $100 Lamps.com gift card to one of my LOVELY readers!

After receiving a plain white drum shade in the mail, I ran off to Lowes and snagged a bunch of paint chips in neutral grey's and whites. In all honesty, I took WAAAY more than I needed because I wasn't exactly sure how I was going to use them. I decided on cutting each piece into 1 inch by 3 inch pieces and hot gluing them on the shade horizontally.
The entire project took me 2 1/2 hours. That's it! I was banking on a good 4 or so, but it went quickly and smoothly. I pulled up my past episodes of Married to the Army Alaska and the time flew by!
I have to say, I like it even more than when it was just an idea in my head. The colors are soothing and it blends into my bedroom perfectly.
That wall is where I want to build my sliding barn door, sometime this year. It is on my big 2013 to do list,
but for now this lovely little vignette will hold it's place.
