Abracadabra- Lamp!

How to- LAMPS!
 I made some of these for my house sale last week and they were the first things to go!  So I thought it must be something people want to learn how to do... Here's how I did it :)


First go to goodwill/salvation army or your Grandma's basement and get an old lamps shade such as this one::::
Cut off all the lining etc. It will just be a metal base.  Do your best when your shopping to check and make sure for a 'non' rusty lamp shade.  Paint it whatever color you want!!!  I used a paint like I use on my canvases.  
Then go to Lows and find a construction light (around 6 bucks).  Take of all the metal pieces and clamps.  
Once your lamp is dry screw it into your new lamp::::
Abracadabra!!!
