First Project done for the year- Lamps!

My client had these lamps that desperately needed a change and wanted to make it as simple as possible.
She didn't like the Southwestern theme because of the color and that it is Ceramic.

Here is the before picture




 So I went to work. I bought some Rust-oleum Stone Gray paint
I love this paint because it has double the coverage and I also have less paint runs if any.
for the shades, I went to Joann's fabric and bought some cream color fabric (trying to keep it as simple as possible). When I was putting on the fabric I wanted just a smooth surface and was having a hard time doing it because of the shape of the shades, and so I decided to make it pleated. That way it gave it a classic look but stayed simple.


So here is the after
 Without the lamp shades





What do you think?
