They started out this hideous color, with no shades, and covered with scuffs.
Materials: sanding block, painter's tape, primer/sealer, paintbrushes, paint, newspaper
I started by sanding them down to prepare them for a fresh coat of paint. Then I did a coat of primer (obviously I had to choose Martha Stewart's brand!), followed by two coats of cobalt blue indoor paint. I finished with a final coat of sealer and then added a fresh lampshade!

My living room...with new and improved lamps!
I'm not a particularly handy person, but I had fun on this project and I think it turned out pretty well.
Have you tried any little home improvement projects in your house/apartment/dorm? How did they turn out?
