Grey Dey Thursdey

I thought I would pop in and do a quick post.

I have been wanting to change the lampshade on my night stand, but couldn't
spend much money so what was my solution?

A ruffled, cotton Hollister skirt from the Goodwill for 2.50.

I assured the lady who was at the checkout that I was NOT going to wear it.

{it was awful short for these legs!}

She told me that she doesn't judge...haha!

It was too big around the waist so I had to do some folding to make it fit the shade, but
I managed to get it done. I am thinking now that is just may be "too foofy" and full, but
I do love the color. I may tweak it , but for now it is what it is.

Linking up with Petite Michelle Louise and Grey Dey.

How sweet, and just the right shade of grey! What a clever idea, Sandi.

I think it's really pretty, Sandi! I want to come up with something with a ruffle for the original shades to our master lamps.
