    Great idea Courtenay. I like how you had your daughter help. Pretty shade of green too.

    That's awesome, thanks for sharing, who knew it would be so easy, I would have thought you would need a fabric medium but you just used regular old indoor house paint? good to know! I will definitely be trying this.

    @Virginia White It was just an old sample pot of Martha Stewart paint in Crevecoeur. Just regular old wall paint! It's nice because it blocks the light and makes it look like one of those fancy dark shades that direct the light only upwards and downwards.
