A Chic, French Lampshade...at Walmart?

 Yes, Walmart!
  I'm loving some of the stuff that Walmart now carries in their BH&G product line.  I went there looking for some plain old drum shades that I could dress up...

 and this is what I found.
Even better than what I had in mind.
Yesterday I painted some old lamps that I had on hand to look like cement/stone.  Sort of an Aiden Gray inspired project.
I think these shades might be just the thing they need.  I haven't even tried them on yet, hence the plastic still on the shades - haha!
I was too excited about them and wanted to share my find with you all first.

Will let you know how they turned out!

Have a great afternoon...
xo and God Bless,

I saw these too and was amazed. I didn't get one, but now I might have to go back. I found your blog by googling French Pillows. I love it and have spent an hour going through. I have enjoyed reading about your DIYs.
