Don't you just love a bargain?
I picked up these striped lamp shades in the clearance section at K-Mart for $1 each a few months ago and have finally got around to using them. They are actually from the kids section but I thought they would be equally nice in our guest room.
I went "shopping" in our garage for a couple of old Freedom lamps that we got many years ago and after ditching the old shades which had turned an unsightly pale yellow, I put my new $1 shades on.
The old lamps now have a new life ahead of them and were cheap as chips! I have a thing for stripes at the moment...and navy blue. :)
