The base was painted white. A different older shade was added and jazzed up with rose petals from the wedding section of a craft store. A little beaded bling was added on the bottom of the shade.
A scrap piece of a feather boa was glued on to the finial. ( I really save small scraps dont I.) A string of white Mardi Gras beads where glued onto the wire part.
I really should have taken a before picture. The base was a green and orange ceramic piece from the 1970s. This is the original shade so you can see why I changed it.

This is another piece from my grandparents that I have been trying to sell since 2001. It was in great shape but I guess people aren't decorating with orange and green lamps with HUGE drum shades anymore. So I shabbied chic'ed it.  The chic part are the white silk rose petals, feather boa and white faux pearls. The shabby part is the original ceramic base paired with an even older lamp shape.  I guess the proportion is the shappy part too. But maybe it will speak to someone.
