DIY- lamp shades and lights!

I had a little fun this week with some lamps in our bedroom. I had seen the toilet paper roll idea for a stencil on Pinterest and thought it would be fun. 

Here is my room before- I had spray painted the lamps a couple years ago yellow. 

before the project.

i used 3 colors for paint and my good ole' toilet paper roll. I just went to town with the paint and made it up as I went. 

I used Mod Podge and embroidery floss on the base of the lamp. I simply soaked the string in the mod podge (styrofoam bowl) and randomly put the string on the lamp. I let it dry for a few hours. It is random and fun. 

 Here is the after:

What do you think? If anything, it holds me over from buying a lamp tomorrow. Ha I love DIY projects!
