Pimping a Thrift Shop Shade



I found this cute pink and white gingham shade at a thrift shop.  I thought it might
look good on a lamp base I found at a different shop.  



I added some white ball fringe and some buttons too.  Now it's all
pimped up.



Now, I wonder what I should do with the pink pillows I found?
I guess you'll have to wait until next Friday to find out.

Off to join Beverly for Pink Saturday

Hey Bentley ~ who said you could take a nap on top of those
pink pillows?  

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  11. Happy Pink Saturday Susan Sweetie and Bentley "Handsome"...
    What a gorgeous share today. I love this beautiful little shade with the base you chose from your own little stash. It fits it to a "T".

    The little ball fringe is darling but those buttons are the element of surprise. I simply adore that addition. I can't wait until next week to see the pillows. You are so creative dear friend.

    Many hugs and much love, Sherry
